So I use to come on here all the time when my husband was addicted to pain medication. He has been off of them for almost a year. He was diagnosed with Hep C like 4- 5 years ago, didn't stop him from taking the pills or drinking. When he got off the pills he drank even more. The doctor wanted him to have a liver biopsy back then and he wouldn't do it. For the last year he has been experiencing "bone aches" I finally go him in to see a new doctor and he finally had the liver biopsy done. Unfortunately the new was not good. Stage 4 cirrhosis. Part of me is so very angry with him because of the choices he made. And I think that if he would have listened back then I would no be writing this now. They want to treat the Hep C but he has to be alcohol free for 6 months first. Then he says he;s not sure if he will get the treatment. The have him on vitamin E for the inflammation. His liver is still functioning, no jaundice, ascites just basically tired all the time and the aches. Isn;t there anything else they can do while waiting for the treatments to start?
