Some promising news:)

Hello,

we were summoned to the hospital this week... Not knowing what was in store we arrived armed with 101 different possibilities. My heart missed a beat when the receptionist said a doctor was to see us... The reason behind all of this was that my husband had been discussed at a meeting of professionals and they had decided to offer him a hep C medication...which is new and is supposed to clear the virus as well as giving him a chance to even be in a position where he may come off the list...

will regularly update:)

That is wonderful news. It's good news week!

A very interesting & hopeful chance for you both then and I am sure a lot of Hep C posters will be very excited. Our fingers & toes are crossed for you both.

Keep posting.

Great

I had hep c and was treated with inteferon and ribavirin for 6 months but it came back I was then put back on for another 12 months and am now free of it and have been for a few years.

They also say that my liver is not as bad as they thought so that was good news

I hope all goes well for you both with the new treatment
