    I was just wanting to know if anyone on here has had hep c to come out of remission after liver transplant, and what they may have done for it if anything. I found out 2 years ago that it came back and I have got to go and get another biopsy with in the next two weeks. I am also insulin dependent since my transplant in 1998. I would appreciate any feed back

    Thanks Gordon

    I KNEW OF ONE MANY YEARS AGO WHO CLEARED AFTER TP.......BUT HAVE NOT SEEN ON LINE FOR LONG TIME....

    YOUR HEP WAS NOT GONE WHEN YOU GOT TP WAS IT? YOU NEEDED A NEW LIVER BUT WAS THE HEP GONE BEFORE THE TP? YOUR HEP WAS STILL IN BLOOD RIGHT? SO IT IS HURTING YOU NEW LIVER. MANY HEPPERS AND TP PATIENTS ARE DIABETICS TOO...I KNOW TP FRIEND WHO HAS A BX OFTEN AFTER TP...SHE IS 11 YEARS POST TP...AND HER HEP WAS NEVER GONE.

    KEEP US POSTED AND COME BACK OFTEN TO KEEP US POSTED AS TO HOW YOU ARE DOING.. WE LOVE LEARNING FROM OTHERS...
