Hi I know it has been awhile but you last said for me to try calling "committment to care" do you have a # for them? I never have heard of them? I am up to try anything at this point. My Hep C is now Chirossis and I have a Feb 2010 appt. at ?Our Lady Of Loudes" hospital in Camden. I wanted to go to Jefferson or Penn in Philadelphia but I only have medicade. NOT Medicare and they won't accept me!! So I have no choice but Copper Hosital or Lady of Loudes in Camden..At least they have trials cause here in South Jersey there is nothing!!!! Thanks in advance for any help you can give me....also are you clear of the hep c virus?
Hi You said for me to CALL committment to care? I never heard about them, do you have a # for it? I go tomorrow to my Hep Doctor up in Mt. Laurel for the results of my liver biopsy, I am so scared, cause I always think the worst!! he practices out of Cooper Hospital in Camden one of the best. I keep looking for that "cure". he said he is putting me back on the Interferon and Riberviron, I HOPE he still will, I guess it depends on my results, I will let you know, where do you live?
Hi..Get a liver biopsy, only way to tell how severe the damage is to your liver.I had it done it does NOT hurt they make you lay flat on a table, hooked to a Ultra Sound you raise your right arm, they put a needle of numbing meds in your side, you feel NOTHING! then they insert the biopsy needle in to the liver, if you feel anything at all, it will be a "pressure" cause of the needle taking a Minucule(need a magnifying glass to see it) piece of liver!! Silly to be afraid in this day and age!! FIND OUT how bad you are for a better way of your Dr. to treat you!! To save your LIFE!!!
