I have a similar friend, she was a nurse at Walter Reed, got it from a needle stick, and a medical retirement from the military when she came up positive. When it started to go acute they did the chemo, Interferon, her life was hell for a year, but she’s virus free and back to her old self.
The treatments are improving, and I’ve been discussing it with my Dr. My numbers are always good, but it can’t be doing nothing, and I’m a carrier.
My friend with Hep C never had any symptoms, it was found during a routine blood test. I pray for the best for you, it was awful to watch my friend go through it.
