Is 11m viral load incurable? I see on google high viral loads are hard/impossible to get rid of? Am I going to die lol? Sorry I just found out yesterday I’m positive for hep c and can’t get a specialist appointment yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have no symptoms as of yet.
I am of zero knowledge on your question but have had Hep C and been treated in 2006 and found cured. At the time a biopsy showed considerable fibrosis and stage 3 portal damage. Recent scans show major improvement 13 years later .The treatment was tough but worth it. There are new drugs for Hep C now so don’t panic and stay positive . Beat wishes
What awesome news that you are cured AND that you have major improvement in your liver!! It is an amazing organ. I’m experiencing the same. It blows my mind and am thankful for us both and many others. Thank you so very much for sharing your experience and your very encouraging words to all community. Please stay well and stay in touch my friend!! All best~ (Randy, Community Moderator)
Hi there RogerDGol and thanks for your question. First, a deep breath… your viral load is NOT indicative of how sick you are or does it mean damage is being done when it’s high or low. It’s true usefulness is to confirm you have chronic HepatitisC and then after treatment to see it no longer there 🙂 I hope that helps. I fully understand (and remember) that “lol” about dying and being scared. Please don’t be scared. There are easy meds today with sky high cure rates! You’re gonna be ok my friend. As far as getting you to a doctor, please give a call to help4hep at 877-435-7443 M-F 9-9 eastern. The counselors there will gladly try to find you care and treatment in your local area. The call and all help are confidential and free. Please give a call ok? All best to you. (Randy, Community Moderator)
Hi Tahir and thanks for your question. I’m sorry I can’t offer medical advice for your safekeeping and I’m also not a doctor. Different doctors have their own opinion about milk thistle; some like it and some feel it has no benefits at all. This is definitely a question you must ask your healthcare provider about. She/he are the people who know your medical history. So please ask ok? I’m super glad you are cured of Hep C!! That’s great news and your body will heal. Stay healthy and best wishes to you!
