I was diagnosed 3 years ago..my viral load was 360,000...genotype 1...no scarring all my liver testing and such was good. My question is I had a second opinion at Ohio State University Wexner. That test too was positive for hep C antibodies? Do I HAVE hep C... no one from 2 hospitals have offered me a "cure"? Is it because i told them i smoke pot daily, or because I'm on medicaid...one nurse commented..."drugs" had gotten me in this mess... any info will be appreciated... have a blessed week.
