Hi NY Pat, I am themiz and my husband, themister, is the guy that eradicated Hep C. Welcome to the Hep forum! We would love to have you start your own thread so more people will see you. Just use the "Post New Topic" button and tell us about
Themister treated twice with Interferon/riba, and like you, found it was barbaric. He failed his first treatment, but did obtain SVR the 2nd time....and we are grateful. Themister needs a transplant and he is on the transplant list with Mayo, AZ.
I think you will find the Solvaldi to be a much more gentle treatment, without interferon. Most sides seem to be riba related. You know the deal with riba already. So drink your water ;)
Again, welcome. And don't be a stranger.Big Hugs
