Congratulations on your SVR and I appreciate your honesty about Riba, I never met a hepper who liked it and most hate it. Good for you, incidentally what drugs were you on for G2?
I was given a prescription for Ribavirin and Sovaldi. 3 months. At 1200 mg per day of Riba, I became anemic. Down to 9.9 after a month. The dose was adjusted to 1000 mg then 800 mg for the last 3 weeks. My joints became sore (shoulders especially), and they still are about 50% as sore as they were. But I am getting better. I drank no alcohol, and gave up cigarettes almost two years ago. Blue Shield only covered two months Sovaldi. I had to come up with the third month myself.
Welcome to Dragon Slayer Leagh :-)
Congratulations! It's always good to hear a success story.
Congratulations! Yes, RIBA is a 'pain' but I am so glad we have it available!
Yours is a Good News - Good News situation: you are undetected (SVR) AND things keep getting better from here. RIBA put me on a walker - of course, I was on it for 24 weeks, and talked my Dr out of lowering my dosage (I am retired, 8 was Gt 3, and my HMG leveled out at 9. 1). It has been 14 months and I feel better than than I can ever remember. I could not see the improvement from day to day, but could look back every week or 2 and see definite improvement!
Keep on eating healthy, drinking lots of water, exercising within your capability (don't wear yourself down), and befor too many months, you, too, will feel like a new person!
Congratulations on your SVR and Hep C Free life!
