My hep doc.. I do not think any of these docs are on the same page which I try to make sure they are. I have two hep docs and one is against the treatment and one is for it which makes me very confused.
I have had the same reaction from different doctors. The surgeon who did two of my biopsies said my liver was in better shape than most people my age and didn't think I should treat. -but that was in 2007 and now it is stage 3&4. My internist who did a vl test or two was freaked out that I was not treating. The reality is that except for specialists, the just don't know.
Arlene, how are you doing? What was your beginning vl and the results of your vl testing so far?
