  • Hi albee61,

    I'm hep c and have cirrhosis

    I'm waiting to have treatment which i was told will start end November early December so any day now

    although I'm relived after 20 years being hep c in 12 weeks it could be gone forever : ) can i ask if you had any side affects if so what were they,how long will it be before you know if the treatment have been a successful?

    Your right it can be a scary lonely place living with hep c as well as other issue but this blog is helpful as well as insightful as we are all at different stages

  • Hi albee61 welcome to our little gang of travelers. I had hep C as well for 30 years before I cleared it with Harvoni. Not before it left it's mark with cirrhosis though. I to am trying to keep active and eat well. So I look forward to reading your posts in the future. Everyone in the forum is helpful and welcoming. So all the best Ian

  • Just re-read ur msg

    is it cos the medication is so strong ...it caused cirrhosis do the tests reveal the extent

  • Hi there no the cirrhosis was caused by having the hepatitis C for so long and nothing to do with the meds. Good luck with your tests.
