I can't believe I'm half way done!! All tests continue to come back that the virus is undetectable and my liver functions are normal. Woohoo!! Super exciting news!!!! I also set up the schedule for the last 24 weeks of appointments and lab work. That really made it feel like it's coming to an end. THANK GOD!! I'll have to test undetectable again AFTER treatment ends to know for sure that it worked but my hopes are high that all is well!!
I mentioned in my last post that the nausea and hair loss was kicking back up. Sure enough my specialist confirmed that hair loss starts at approximately the half way point and that there is no way to really know if the nausea will get better or worse for the second half. He prescribed me something for the nausea to take on an as needed basis and assured me that any hair loss (no matter how major) is only temporary and will grow back after treatment. The hair loss hasn't been horrible yet, but from the sounds of it there is a good possibility it will get worse. Thankfully I'm feeling good enough about treatment that I haven't allowed any future tripping or worst-case-scenario type things to bog my mind down. I just want to keep trudging forward and hopefully be able to tell the world I'm cured after this is all said and done!
