okay now I know...what do I do next?
Diagnosed with Hep C recently.  I am an obstetrical nurse for 18 years, received gamma globulin transfusions x 3 in 1986 for ITP..am RH negative & received Rhogam for 3 pregnancies 1979 through 1986..so I guess how is a mute point.  Married 26 years, soon to be ex-husband is negative (don't really know why I included that :))
  I really want to know the smartest most informed plan now.. I live in the Chicago land area.. Any advice would be appreciated..Thank you

You need to find out where you are with the disease, your genotype and stage and blood levels.
I imagine there is good medical care in Chicago, find a good hepatologist that you can work with.  
Once you find out your genotype you will have a better idea of course of action.
I am geno 1 the most common and most difficult to treat w/ interferon.  
I am stage 1 according to biopsy 2 yrs. ago, I am trying to wait for better treatment.  We shall see.
Good luck,

Mikki keep doing exactly what you are doing.  Ask questions and learn all you can. The doctors generally have great intentions but many of them don't keep up on the latest advances in this disease. Without this forum I probably would not have succeeded my treatment but with it's knowledgable members I did.

good luck.
