You can post here, as many people on this forum have Hep C and Cirrhosis.  You can also post in the Cirrhosis of the Liver forum (see blue link to the right under related forums) where you will find only people with Cirrhosis, keeping in mind that Hep C is not the only cause of Cirrhosis.
Best wishes.  We hope to learn more about you and your particular case.  There are lots of great people on this forum who are happy to help.

Hi Marco, and yet another welcome! I've had HCV probably since 1984 when I had a transfusion. I treated once in 1994 or 1995 for 3 months with just interferon but failed, then was diagnosed as cirrhotic in 2004 and treated again for 72 weeks with interferon and ribavirin. That time I achieved UND but relapsed after tx. Now I have just completed 48 weeks of triple tx with incivek. This was most definitely the hardest treatment, I imagine the extra years of age (now 58), and the extra years of liver damage both added to the hardship, but that incivek is one hell of a difficult drug too. I never would have made it without the support of this forum. I would hate to list all of my side effects, as every body is different and you might not have any of the same problems. I do want to encourage you to read everything you can about the tx and to be prepared for all the possibilities. Do you have a start date yet, and do you know which combo you will be on?
