My Dr Told me when I started treatment that they would never tell me I'm cured but once it is gone it rarely comes back. For me it did come back after treatment was concluded and I am waiting for new treatments hopefully next year.View Thread
I was diagnosed with Hep C when I was fifteen years old, was kept on bedrest and good diet. For years after that my blood work showed exposure only. Now four years ago at age 49 it showed up as full blown Hep C. I figure I was so healthy my body was fighting the virus keeping the viral load down. If you show exposure you probably will test positive later in life.View Thread
