Newly Diagnosed
« on: February 13, 2014, 07:00:48 pm »
Well hello everyone!

I am here to research my diagnoses of Hep C.  I have my first consultation with a doctor at Grand River Gastroenterology at the end of this month.  I am not sure what to expect etc.  Some of my research explained why I was feeling the way I was for the last few months, so I am thankful for knowing why I was bloated, tired, would only eat part of my meal and would feel full.

So I guess it is a good time at least according my physician because of the new treatments that have been approved.  So you will probably get a few questions from this newbie!

Welcome - There are a few of us on this forum that are now cured, so yes, your timing is good as far as treatment is concerned. Thanks for introducing yourself. Looking forward to your questions.
