Yes, good luck! This was interesting enough to become its own topic and allow forum members to comment or ask questions. Let us know how treatment goes and subsequent test results.

Hi Mimi. I contracted unknowingly Thur a blood transfusion when I was a few weeks pregnant. My daughter is hep C positive and completed treatment about 3 years ago with sovaldi ,interferon and ribovirin if I not mistaken. Was cured thank God. I've just completed my first week. May your treatment journey be smooth.
