How is everyone doing after successful treatment of Hep C?

Been five years for me.  I think finally I have recovered fully.

Just over 8 years post failed Combo tx, I'm 1 week in with Harvoni. I was left with panic attacks that started during tx and never left. I started a new drug for that, Effexor about a week before I began the Harvoni. Both drugs cause blurry vision so that is my only complaint. My computer has drop shadows on the letters and my night vision was already pretty bad. I'm hanging tough with both, actually feel pretty good other than the blindness :/

I'm three years clear of Hep C.  I do an MRI every 3 months for cancer check.  I am at stage 4 cirrhosis.

My concern is the memory loss.  I am experiencing this and I'm reading that could have caused by the combination of interferon and ribavirin.

Have you discussed this with your liver specialist? Is it possible you may be developing HE (hepatic encephalopathy)?

So hard to tell as the baseline for what it felt to be 'normal' vanished years ago. Survived Hep C but on to the next bit that aging brings
