I am 53 y.o. and was diagnosed with hep c in March 2012. Was sent to a GI dr for treatment. During this time I had surgery for abdominal adhesions and when the surgeon saw the liver he automatically did a liver biopsy which the GI dr said he would do a few months down the road. The pathology report came back stage 4 of 4. After seeing the gi dr for over 4 months have still had no trestment for the hep c or the cirrhosis. After talking to my primary care dr and advising him the gi dr only wanted to discuss a colonoscopy which I did have done he said he would refer me to a different gi dr. I have an appointment at Vanderbilt Hospital in November at the transplant facility. I have not been able to work since Feb and I am in severe pain all the time and most of the time I am in bed. I am scared to death and don't know what to do.View Thread
