No, probably not but why would you start drinking again when your liver has obviously sustained damage?

Hi, If someone  ever has HCV the antibodies will always show on a blood test. Even if they are cured and SVR. Only way to see if you have an active virus is with a PCR test.

As mentioned above you will always show the HCV antibody even if you cleared the virus.
