i've had hepatitis c for about 15 years, and during that time i got checked once to see how my liver was doing and it was fine, but now i actually want to start a treatment and i really dont know where to go or what to do . i live in Orange County costa mesa. if someone knows anything i would really appreciate it.
What Eric said and here! Stay here thru your questions and tx, Dr.s see you, 'discuss; with you, inform you to a point, give the meds and than you'll still have a hundred questions! Here you'll get support, answers to sides of tx, advice (always with 'check with your Dr in mind), help understanding labs, lingo, viral load, Geno type and much more. There is a lot of minds here, a LOT of expierience-from feeling and being where your at, a lot of knowledge, from all over the world. I think everyone here will tell you this site helped them thru it ALL, and continues to for those starting out in this, treating and post tx.
Teaching Hospitals are the best, newest tx's, trials, often assistance if no insurance, etc.
Anyhow...what Eric said and welcome here :)
