Living with hep C-long term side effects

I was told I had hep C when I was in my twenty’s.
Now I’m 61 and just the past couple of months my stomach has been swollen up and sharp pain this is not good. I feel horrible now I’m getting scared.

    Terrygaines, have you seen a liver specialist to discuss treatment? I hope younwill make an appointment with a gastroenterologist, an infectious disease doctor, or a hepatologist, before you get any sicker. There has been a cure for hep C for the last five or so years. Please see a medical provider. ~ Sue, Community Moderator
