Recently diagnosed with Hep C after showing some symptoms whilst on holiday. My liver swelled up, had jaundice and dark urine for almost two weeks. It has been a dramatic process for me as I could not fathom how I got infected. It took a lot of support from my partner to accept the diagnosis. I feared that he would leave me upon hearing the news. Although he is very supportive, Hep C has affected my confidence and self-esteem. Sex life, of course has also been eliminated which I am afraid might affect our relationship. I am currently having my blood tests done every Monday and yet to see my specialist doctor. Not on treatment. But somehow my ALT results are showing great improvement. I am hoping for the best outcome of it all. They keep saying that I may not need the treatment as my body might develop the antibodies that would kill the virus and I was told it is safer (or much better) that way. I am not confident not to have treatment though. I prefer it to be cleared up by medications as it would give me peace of mind. What do you all think?
