I have just been diagnosed with Hep C and am wondering if I am too late for treatment. I contracted the disease in 2008 so have had it for almost 9 years. Only just diagnosed.
I have been getting upper right quadrant discomfort. Rib muscles sore and when my liver is pressed on it is tender to touch. Pain radiates to back on right side also. This is what led to diagnosis.
My worry is that my liver may be too damaged to cope with treatment after all this time. I don't know the state of my liver and at this moment don't know what type of hep I have. Will be finding out soon.
What are my chances that I am too late for tx?
