I posted before, saying my boyfriend was diagnoses with chronic Hep C. I just got a call saying that my blood tested positive for the Hepatitis C virus. Lovely. I have an appointment with my primary doctor next Tuesday. I guess she'll be doing more tests, right? I was reading online that they put people on meds for like 6 months that try to get rid of the virus. But, I read that those meds take a toll on your body. Anyone with experience with those meds? My boyfriend is seeing a liver specialist later this month. Looks like we are both going to be suffering.

I FOUND IT EASIER TO NEVER EVER SAY "" WHY ME"". LEARN ALL YOU CAN ABOUT HCV. I GAVE YOU A LINK 3 WEEKS AGO TO STUDY. GO TO THE CDC AND STUDY THERE TOO.

NO BOOZE FROM NOW ON AT ALL.

I DID 48 WEEKS OF TX(TREATMENT) 14 YEARS AGO HAD A 30% CHANCE OF CLEARING AND I DID. MY STAGE 4 LIVER IS HAPPY I DID TX AND CLEARED. I BELIEVE YOU ODDS ARE MUCH MUCH BETTER NOW FOR SURE.

FIND AN MD YOU LIKE AND TRUST. LISTEN AND LEARN ALL YOU CAN.
