Good news & Bad news

I was diagnosed with HepC a couple of months ago but needed fibroscan and then CT scans before treatment. I have type 1 and I can start my hepatititis treatment on Monday they have told me today BUT the CT scan showed abdominal varices so I have to take a beta blocker too. Very scared about the varices and apprehensive about the HepC treatment as I’m one of those people who won’t take a paracetamol if they can help it.

My nurse says another person is sailing through the same treatment with no side effects so I hope I’m lucky there too ... I’ve just retired (61) and am generally active and healthy so I really do hope to halt the liver damage and get on with my life as best I can. Hope is stronger than fear

Hi, I am the same when it comes to tablets & that was the most worrying part of starting this treatment. Check some past posts of mine against how good i feel now. I am fine & have been taking 3 tabs a day for 2 weeks now. The hospital said I am doing really well in that no complaining, eating well, working still & my positivity 😍 The hospital and your team will monitor you carefully & they are there to contact if you have any worries along the way. They will look after you

Best of wishes, vritual 😍 xx
