I was diagnosed in '96, no symptoms, 'chance' catch when I was getting prescribed meds for something totally unrelated which required a liver blood test first. Next I know, I'm at liver doc doing shots for 6 mos and not responding. I am right now 20 weeks into a 48 week treatment. Side fx are not fun but I know they'll be over about Feb 24 (not that I'm counting...). I'm proud of you for starting with AA. You can do this thing! Be sure to surround yourself with the right people.View Thread
First of all, there is no such thing as 'dormant' hep c. I would highly recommend seeing a good gastro doc or hepatologist.
Secondly, hep c is only transmitted by blood to blood contact so with most sexual contact, this is not a problem, however, you bring up a third issue - unprotected sex with your boyfriend - you do the research.View Thread
Depends on his side fx, what kind of work he does, & what kind of support he gets from you and others. I am 16 weeks into treatment and haven't missed any work. I am an electronics technician. There are a lot of days that if I had to do hard, heavy outside work I would be in trouble - but that's also not what I am used to doing. Plenty of honest communication between the two of you and plenty of prayer goes a long way. Y'all can do this.View Thread
My 12 wk viral load is still Not Detected. Praise God! Still living with / working through the side effects. Anyone take Neurontin for the shakiness / tremors? How'd it work? What side fx did you experience?View Thread
I can see how this would be a shock, to find out from other people. Please get help working through this, whether from a counselor, Pastor, or an experienced couple with a successful marriage. Your marriage is worth it.View Thread
