SOLVALDI-OLYSIO WORKED- finally something worked!

THIS IS the day I have been waiting for..... let's see.....for about 15 years now! The last treatment worked --- I AM HEP C FREE!! Feeling so blessed and grateful!

ANYONE with 1b - and cirrhosis should do this easy 12 week treatment (just like I did) and EXPECT the same results!

AWWW HAAA - Dragon is dead!!!

Congratulations! Thank you for sharing the news.  I treated for 1a on Olysio and Sovaldi for 12 weeks and was undetectable at 4 weeks post tx.
In 6 weeks I have my 12 week post tx test It is great to know the tx worked for you. Wishing you good health.

I am so happy for you!!  I just found out today I'm starting on Sovaldi/Olysio (sofosbuvir/simeprevir) in a couple of weeks.  I was discouraged because Ledipasvir is supposed to get FDA approval this October and has a 93-100% cure rate.  You've given me hope this will work for me.  I can't imagine your joy!  So glad you share it with us!!

It looks like you're doing the same treatment I'm going to be doing, Sovaldi and Olysio?  Are you having any side effects?  How are you feeling?

I've failed three treatment attempts:  1) interferon only, never cleared; 2) Peg and Riba, never cleared; 3) Infergen and Riba, developed retinal hemorrhaging at week 9 and had to stop.

I had really bad itching with treatment #2, nausea, hair falling out, etc.  I think most of my sides were from the Peg or Riba, but upon research it looks like those side effects could still come up in this oral-only regime?  I'm just trying to get prepared.

Good luck and I hope you SVR!!  I'll be watching!

Congrats.  I'm also 2 wks. post tx.  I contracted the virus 45 yrs. ago, diagnosed 12 or so years ago.  Never had tx before.  Qualified for Medicare last yr., changed docs, got referred to an awesome liver specialist, and everything just fell into place (after yrs. of trying to get help).  Medicare D covered the whole tx.  Waiting to see if my liver can begin to repair itself.  Good luck to everyone else for a full recovery and long life!
