I am here so it worked. HCV is still active as there seems to be no cure. Don't know how much time is left but currently I am alive, healthy and active.

Take one day at a time. Think positive. Exercise as much as possible before and after transplant. Have a good support system of family and friends. If your doctor wants to put you on the transplant list, do it. Don't wait tel you get so sick that your loved ones have to decide for you.

The doctors there, saved my husband's life.

Had a liver transplant in July, 2010, because my Hep C had finally led to early Cirrhosis and a cancerous tumor. Transplant got rid of the Cirrhosis and cancer, but it does not get rid of Hep C.
