      Hep c is treatable. The treatment today is Interferon shots once a week and several Ribavirin pills every day. The length of treatment is either 24 or 48 weeks depending on the Genotype of Hep c that the patient has.

     There is a lot to do before treatment. The patient needs to go to a specialist either a Gastro or hepatoligist. They will do blood work to determine what type of Hep c and how much damage has been caused. And then they will either recommend for or against treatment.
     But the patient should go to a specialist and get themselves informed about the desease and treatment. This forumn is probable the best place you can do that. I found it to be very enlightening and helpful.
     I wish I had found it before treatment. I learned a lot.
