A few years ago I heard of people being on tx. after transplants. They said they ended up with an easier hep C  to cure. Also, if you haven't cleared the virus there is a chance you will get another infected liver that is in better shape

If you’re referring to IFN treatment post transplant, yes; there are a number of Medhelp members that have done that. Two that come to mind immediately are mikesimon (Mike) and IAmTheWalrus (Brent).

Are you preparing for transplant?
