found out a little over a year ago....
« on: December 24, 2015, 03:22:04 pm »
While I was pregnant I learned I tested pos for hcv, after lab work 3 times they still didn't tell me a genotype and once my son was born they told me about treatments and I had an appt w my GI, more lab work and never heard back with options. I learned the viral count is 20,000(which I had to research on my own to learn that that's considered low and insurance won't cover unless my livers failing. ) I'm not really sure where to go at this point besides eating healthy and avoiding alcohol/drugs.  I have noticedmy appetite is decreasing lately, should I make more appointments ? Or just kinda keep up on my health otherwise? Kinda lost.
