Some promising news:)


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:)

    He has genotype 3, did not clear with inteferon and ribavirin... These meds are new one has not been approved yet, but being given on compassionate grounds... Once i can spell the names of the meds properly I will add to this post...

  • 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
