WITH YOUR V/L SO LOW YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF KICKING YOUR HCV OUT KIDDO......SECOND OPINION NEVER HURTS....MY V/L WAS LOW AND I CLEARED 12 YEARS AGO AND MY STAGE 4 LIVER IS HAPPY I DID TX FOR SURE....

MAY I ASK YOUR AGE? I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SOJGRENS SYNDROME...DID YOUR GASTRO SAY THAT WOULD BE A PROBLEM ON TX?

I DO KNOW HCV AND TX WILL WAKE UP OTHER PROBLEMS IN OUR BODIES....THAT IS WHY MD'S KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON US WHEN ON TX...

PLEASE DO COME BACK AND KEEP US POSTED...
