Are you symptomatic or just blood test + ? I got transfused back in 1977, abnormal liver test since, but never to the point of symptomatic illness. Tested Hep C + in 1990. Worked as a medic, then LPN, and RN for the past 25 years. Doc says my hep C is so stable that the current treatments are more dangerous to me! If you're not physically ill (most people have hep c for many years before they develop symptoms, IF they develop symptoms) get you a good gastroenterologist to follow your condition, don't use alcohol or other drugs. If you are symptomatic, follow the docs instructions. My Hep C has remained asymptomatic even though I take Immune suppressants for an auto-immune illness.
