My friend has hepatitis B virus (1B type) and now she is experiencing cirrhosis and ascites. She lives in China now and is seeking treatment in US.
Could you recommend a heptologist in San Antonio? My email address is: ***@****.
Thanks very much!
Sorry I haven't posted to this site since starting the trial. My apologies! I've been Hep C Free from the second week on Gilead's Clinical Trial II, that I started on August 8, 2013. The medications I was on was were Sofosbuvir, GS-5816 and Ribavirin. I have genotype 3a. I finished all medication on October 30, 2013, at which time I was still Hep C free. I was just testing again on November 30, 2013, and should have the results by next week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed because the true test will be six (6) months after your last dose of medication. I went through Interferon and Ribavirin back in 2007, which I again was Hep C free within a week and remained Hep C free up almost up to the six month mark, but then it came back. All I can do is wait and hope for the best.
