... surgery. I was devastated but reading this support group has reassured me. I'm on my second day of treatment and so far no side effects. Is there any hair loss involved?
There's no hair lose during treatment of Harvoni at lease it not in the list of side effects . I've completed my twelve weeks of treat and didn't have any hair lose . You will be fine . Good luck in your journey and God bless you .
I am a female with long hair. I just finished my 12 weeks yesterday. I did not lose any hair at all. The drug is so easy to take compare to past treatments I had. Wishing you the best of luck. I am now waiting out my 3 months to see info am cured
I was on a twelve week plan... the only side effect was a morning headache eliminated by drinking plenty of water. I also took furosemide and spirilactone to manage ascites. Prior to Harvoni...
I retained enough fluids to require paracentisis every two weeks... removing 8 litres of fluid from my abdomen. Switching from taking my meds throughout the day, at meal time to taking them all at once, in the morning had immediate results. My hair was not effected except for chest and leg hair... spironolactone gave me man boobs... which since stopping... have gone.
My weight went from 235 to 286 before treatment for ascites... then down to 157... and now... for 6 months stayed at 215.
I feel great except for achy joints... and the fluids effected my esophagus so that I will need a beta blocker (nadolol) for the rest if my life. Im 67... non drinker or smoker... HepB since Woodstock (1969)
with zero symptoms.
Hep was discovered during treatment for a 2 cm kidney stone... removed Jan6, 2016... 4 months after diagnosis. Never sick or hospitalized my whole life... got heat stroke and wham... all this.
Ill be glad when joint pain goes away... primary doc thinks pain is from hep shots in tendons...
Sorry to rant!!!
