I received some great news this morning! My one month follow-up tests on December 1, 2014 for my HARVONI treatment showed that my viral load is now undetectable after one month of treatment!
|Component||Your Value||Standard Range||Units|
|Hcv Rna Qnt Pcr||<15 NOT DETECTED||<15||IU/mL|
|Hcv Rna Quant Rt Pcr||<1.18 NOT DETECTED||<1.18||Log IU/mL|
I suspect that I was undetectable sooner than the one month milestone based on my rapid decline after 8 days on HARVONI but there were no tests conducted during that time to know for sure. The last dose of my 8 week treatment cycle will be taken on December 25. What an amazing holiday gift! It appears that I will do another set of blood tests on December 18 or 19 to make sure that everything is still undetectable prior to me taking my last dose.
