Hello, I was just diagnosed with hep C ( only did the first HCV antibody test). I have a slightly enlarged liver from an ultrasound I had that I requested because I was having joint pain and a lot of digestive issues. All of my blood work is normal. I am 36 years old female and I have absolutely no idea where I could have contacted this. I am very scared and I feel doomed. Reading online it seems like the treatments leave you with long term side effects. I guess I am just looking for some reassurance that everything will be okay and I will get better and be my old self again. I have a 2 year old son and he has to get tested as well, so I am fearful of that. I'm just looking for someone to talk to about all of this. I feel very alone.
