Hi, I was diagnosed with Hep C some 3 years ago, Genotype 3A with a Viral load that started at 120 which is now 2000+. rather stupidly I have continued persistently drinking at an extremely heavy level. I was just browsing through some notes and realised that I havn't got much idea what it all means. I do not know how serious this is or what the likely outcome will be or what I am likely to expect. Here is a snippet of a note I got last year : Blood results show abnormal LFTs with Gamma GT at 257 and ALT at 122. Ultrasound shows Fatty liver and a 16x9mm hypochoic lesion in the right lobe of the liver which could be fat sparring or any other lesion in the liver. MRI refered (since done). I have frequently been advised to quit alcohol but am a very heavy drinker and just cant seem to stop. I am heavily addicted to methadone, use certain benzos, and have used crack, heroin and others for over 12 years now (not proud of that at all!). I do not get enough exercise and break a sweat very easily. I also suffer from depression, anxiety, insomnia, and a few other things. I am in my 30's. I obviously need a serious change of lifestyle but I don't know where to begin with it. I have not experienced any pain but have had symptoms such as itching, sweating and generally feeling tired and unwell although these could be a number of other things. My question is : Is my liver trouble what one might consider serious ? Any feedback would be appreciated. It hasn't really bothered me for a while but just having seen the letter again (dated last year) it has worried me a little and I have not heard anything back from the MRI scan yet either. Thanks for reading.
