Hello World! I am here looking for support, education, and ALWAYS looking for hope for Dad. Dad was diagnosed with Cirrhosis from Hep C in February of 2010. He is Genotype 2 and began treatment and was responding well but just couldn't make it long enough to clear. He r
[More]eceived his gift of life from my amazing live donor boyfriend, Donny, in June of 2011. We are almost two years post-transplant and have thankfully experienced few complications. There have been no issues with rejection. Dad has, however, had bile duct complications due to them being too narrow, and still has exterior tubes. He also has an umbilical hernia and diabetes. Recently the doctors reported that he has scarring at a grade 1:6 from the HCV. He will be begining Pegasus and Riboviron this coming Monday, March 25th 2013. It is a rollercoaster of feeling optimistic and then extremely overwhelmed and nervous. I appreciate any experiences, tips, and of course hope that anyone has to offer. I am also an open book and would love to share our experience with others. Love to you all. We are never alone.
Thanks for asking (back in March!)
I have not been on the forum for a long time. I am doing pretty well just waiting for a drug to get approved that I could TX with. Victrellis and Invivek are not an option to to drug interaction with AR drugs I take. Next year is possible.
