Doctor again check the HCV-PCR test.
Result : Hepatitus C virus (RNA) Detected.
My mother have no potential to take again course of interferon.
what is i'll do ?
DId they do the combo therapy with Ribaviran?? I'm told that one really does little without the other.
There are NUMEROUS people knowledgeable about HEP C on here (there is a dedicated forum) - and I would post there.
I will say that a few people can clear HCV on their own - but generally less so as time marches on. Next, people can live for decades with HEPC. It is possible -even with no other treatment that your Mother could live to an advanced age. Outside of that - hope still exists via liver transplantation and along with medical advances that periodically occur.
