This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I understand your confusion.
Depending genotype of the virus, this may not be completely eradicated even after 24 weeks of therapy.
This does not mean treatment failure.
But this does mean you need longer duration treatment till it becomes undetectable.
Harvoni is a good medication and so far it has very high success rate.
So far it is encouraging response in your case --and not totally unexpected.
Genotype 1a virus can show polymorphism and can sometimes require addition of ribavirin with harvony for full clearance.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
