I have been diagnosed with hep c for 2 years, the VA(I am a female veteran) said since I am under 40 and female and no damage to my liver and low viral load, they have not started treatment. Thurs. my regular dr. found my liver enlarged by today, saturday, I can barely walk. Before I go back to dr. does anyone have suggestions for comfort, heating pad, ice? home remedies, anything????

IF YOU ARE DRINKING BOOZE AT ALL PLEASE STOP NOW. HAVE YOU CHANGED ANYTHING? FOODS, DRINK, MEDS?

JUST TRY ALL DIFFERENT THINGS TO STOP THE PAIN. BREATHING EXERCISE ALWAYS HELPS ME. TRYING TO RELAX. IF IT GETS TOO BAD GO TO ER.

I DISAGREE ABOUT NO TX. LOW V/L MEANS TX MEDS MAY WORK BETTER FOR YOU.
