Hep c for 15 years

i've had hepatitis C for about 15 years never any problems got clean around that time 15 years ago now I must go for a liver biopsy I'm not scared because I have had an amniocentesis before and didn't feel a thing so I think this should be a breeze then will find out what the results are and if I should go on any medication to cure my hep c I may give it a shot. So I'm optimistic and I will let everyone know what happens the biopsy is scheduled for September 29 2016

Best wishes to you for 29th. Would be a good idea to whack the hep anyway if you have the opportunity as the little blighter does eat away at our livers over time. The new treatments are markedly easier than the old ones of interferon etc Glad you have such a positive attitude. Regards anne.


Hi Tillycindy

Thanks for liking some of my posts/messaging

Looks like one of my messaging communications has come to a bit of a sticky end

Guess i'm too outspoken sometimes

Need to get brain in gear first

I went to hospital again today

And been offered Viekira instead of Harvoni

Have you had treatment?

Hope you're doing well whatever

It does seem to be the riba that is the trouble, if hadn,t had cirrhosis wouldn,t have been given it. Gen 3a. Been told ribba can take 6mths to clear the system ! xx
