I was diagnosed September 2016 with hep c genotype 2a after a routine check showed high liver enzymes. I HAD NO SYMPTOMS. I have never injected drugs and do not know how I contracted this disease. My fibroscan was 20.9 which means F4 so cirrhosis is quite bad. I HAVE NO SYMPTOMS OR SIGNS OF A LIVER PROBLEM. It seems that I could of had Hep C for many many years. I am lucky to have private health care and so I had all my tests including MRI Scans done privately to rule out any other issues such as liver cancer. Thankfully I don't have any other liver related problems. Private Health care plans don't cover medication so I had to switch back to the NHS for my treatment which I started one week ago. It's a 12 week course of Ribaviran and Sovaldi. It seems I was "lucky" that my fibroscan showed F4 as it put me up the list for NHS treatment. I did a lot of research online following my diagnosis and found a lot out from forums like this. I wanted to start a post because I am happy to share my experience so far and maybe it will help others. It sounds like I've had an easy ride but trust me It's been anything but easy. If I had a pound for every blood sample that went missing, didn't come back, was labelled wrong, was contaminated...... I would be a rich lady.
