“Just because you got the monkey off your back, doesn’t mean the circus has left town.”
This group is for anyone who is POST Treatment for Hepatitis C no matter which drug they took. Some of us have just completed treatment, some are SVR12 (cured), some have relapsed. We are here to get healthy regardless and hopefully save our livers! In the process we will stay in touch to monitor our health and get through whatever issues we have Post Treatment. May we all live happy, healthy lives going forward! We will allow links to information and research and ask that you be careful about your research and article shares and that they be from a reliable source, and also pay attention to the date of the research. IF IT IS PRIOR TO 9/2014, it is possibly out of date information.
