I am new to this community. My doctor has discussed waiting for the new medicine that is coming out hopefully soon. Being 64 years old that it might be better for me than the shots. Just found out I had this in the last year and a half. Lately I am getting very tired and ache is this a normal part of living with hep c? I was so upset to learn I have this, and can use some moral support from people who understand.
