I was infected with HEP C during surgery a year before I started treatment. I just finished last week and hope to have a positive result in July for final labs.I have had great support from Nancy at HepC connection with questions. I do not recommend going on line to chat lines. Every case is different. The night before I started I was preparing to be in bed for months-loosing ALL my hair (it did thin just a bit) but I do recommend the Book Living with Hepatitis C by Dr Gregory Everson. Use your phone to make sure you have an alarm to take you meds at the same time everyday--that was a huge help.I wish everyone well-I also juiced with apple-celery-banana-a slice of ginger- parsley or anything green. I will continue this forever--it is so healthy.Keep a positive attitude--you are the one who needs to take care of yourself--there is a lesson there!
