I can officially say I am SVR. What a long trip. I believe I got infected about 4.5 years ago. Started treatment with Gilead trial of Riba, 5885, 9451, and one other. That failed after 8 weeks so I immediately picked up PEG and went on for 48 more weeks. I am one of the lucky ones who had no sides. None! I felt great throughout my trial. Finished in Sept 2012 and just got my 24 week post test results. SVR!! This board is amazing. I know first hand how scary this whole process can be and have spent many hours here scouring info and talking to new friends about treatment. Good luck to everyone!
