Hi Jess,

Although this may sound ironic, there's never been a better time to be diagnosed wit Hep-C. The treatment options are so much better then even a few years ago. And the cure rate is off the table.

Hep-C is difficult to talk about, as there is a lot of stigmata associated with the diagnosis

This is a great place to start and there are a lot of helpful, knowlegable folks here.

Remember: It is not really that important to know how you got Hep-C - what's important is you can now get rid of it!

Best wishes, Mike

Hi Jess,  as always I am glad to meet you and sorry to welcome you to the Hep C club.  Mike is right, options abound, treatments are 1/4 as long and much easier, and cure rates have doubled to close to 90%.  When you get your blood test you will want to know about your liver functions and what genotype Hep C you are.  Hep C is typically a slow progressing disease (I had it 36 years before cured), but the liver panel will indicate any liver distress. Nothing beats a biopsy, but assuming you recently contracted, your liver should be just fine.

Do you know how you contracted Hep C, and if so have you adjusted your lifestyle to take that risk away?  This forum wants to see you get cured and stay cured!

Let us know and don't sweat it!
