Thanks Med. Help this site has been an Oasis for me.
As Hepatitis C. goes, I consider myself one of the fortunate ones. I am 2b with minimal liver damage. I am starting t
[More]reatment In September (now November) and if all goes well, I will have my life back around Spring or early Summer. I know some people would hold off until better treatment comes along if they were in my shoes but I am ready to close this chapter of my life and move on as soon as possible.
01-09 I guess I should update this. I completed tx and was officially SVR around late November, early December 08. Tx was rough and recovery was slow but I made it.
I have come to the conclusion, my HCV was more than a “Chapter In My Life” and there is no such thing as “Closing It and Moving On” It is hard for me to believe, less than 2 years ago I didn’t know what HCV was. I am glad I chose not to keep it secrete. So far 5 people has come to me that have been dx, just to talk because they had no one else to go to (one is stage 4). Since “The Baby Boomers” are aging and HCV awareness is neglected, we may be the only support for some.
