Your brother has had enough bad luck for twenty lifetimes. I'll keep him in my prayers.
Im sorry to hear your brother also tested positive. You'll both be ok. Just make sure you get him to a hepatologist. Please keep us posted and know anytime you need the forum we are all here for you.
good luck with your tx.
I will send double prayers ! You''ll be ok!
I am so sorry you and your brother have this awful virus...you are both in my prayers...I do not know about cerebral palsy and Hep C but I wanted to say how saddened I am to hear you both have it
UInlike HIV, Hep C is not very likely to pass from mother to child, let alone to two children at the same time, but I guess it's *possible*. Good luck, I'm sorry to hear that you and your brother both share identically in this disease too. As has already been posted, make sure to follow through with regular checkups & bloodwork.
So sorry about your brother. When I first started doing research about hep C transmission via blood transfusions, I ready somewhere that 1 in 4 people who received blood or platelet transfusions prior to 1992 were infected with the viruse, and of those 1 in 4, half of them do not know they have it.
I guess all I can do is educate him and we can go through this togeather.......... Thanks for the prayers! I need them....
I have 2 children who got HCV from me - I didnt know I had it as do many many people - perhaps that was the case with your Mom, or perhaps you got it another way, but at this point it doesnt really matter. IT'S IMPORTANT TO GET A BIOPSY to see where you are at. My son has CP and he treated and is doing fantastic. The only thing that changed was his seizure meds. You have youth on your side. Where do you live? You can send me a private message if you want to know more about our story and our experience. You are very close in age to my kids - maybe I can put you in touch.
