Thanks Mike! I never drank after my diagnosis in 2007 but every once in a while I think, I would love a kahula and cream, LOL
Not any more...
Thank you, Dee
From what I remember Hector saying, he said that people with HCV and cirrhosis, once cured, needed to be followed for at least 8 years because they were more likely to be diagnosed with cancer of the liver.
Also people with HCV and cirrhosis are the hardest to treat.
When I treated with Incivek my doctor said it might not work because I had been dx with cirrhosis.
I feel lucky that he let me try. Some people were not allowed to use it because they had cirrhosis with varices, fluid retention, etc..
I would think if you take a bad liver, add alcohol, it would have to be a worse outcome. Everyone is different. I had a friend who drank for the 30 years that he had HCV and he had little damage to his liver. The doctor could not believe it, tested him twice for HCV.
