About Me: Male, 58, Manchester , United Kingdom, member since May 2009
Male, 53 yrs old,Genotype 1a,non responder after 2 treatments,disease progression over last 10 yrs-stage 0 to early cirrhosis. Waiting to retreat.
Hep c positive, diagnosed 1998, after two failed treatments I now have early cirrhosis and steatosis.Until new treatmwnts become available will be relying on exercise and diet to maintain health-I want my liver in a good compensated state for a long time yet !
Most of the time am optimistic about my future but am prone to allowing my imagination and fear to colour the picture from time to time.
You're in my thoughts but especially today. I just want to express my sorrow for the loss of your sister suffering with HC. My heart goes out to you and your family. Want to thank you for leaving me a welcome message to my post.
