Hepatitis C Support Group

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne viral disease which can cause liver inflammation, fibrosis, cirrhosis and liver cancer. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is spread by blood-to-blood contact with an infected person's blood. Many people with HCV infection have no symptoms and are unaware of the need to seek treatment. Hepatitis C infects an estimated 150-200 million people worldwide.

  • Shoot, I dont know. This place was so relevent to me and others before harvoni. It would be cool if we could all band together and make this place relevent and encouraging for those starting AND those who now wonder what damage they are left with. Absence makes the heart grow fonder...I miss just about everybody now. But alas, ordinary life interupts once the life raft is no longer essential....

    this site is completely different and not very user friendly.  It used to be very interactive and easy to locate different members and topics.  Images could be posted and you could really obtain an insight to other members experiences.   Anyway, I am hepC 1a viral load 5 million and just been prescribed Harvoni.  I wanted to share treatment notes, but this site is hard to understand.  It...

    Fibromyalgia after tx

    0
    Anyone end up with fibro after tx?  Took Harvoni and Ribavirin last year and think that may have triggered it (if that is what I even have).  Just get pains in different places on my body and feel like I have the flu sometimes. I don't know what else could be causing it

    Hi Ive had an account for awhile but haven't posted anything, I just like to read other ppls stories. I went to middle school w/ a boy back in the day then when we became adults we started dating. We were together for 5 years and during our 2nd year I found out he had Hep C. By that time I thought I was in love. He got it from shooting up drugs. When we got together I would not have it. I'm not...

    follow up after cured?

    1
    I completed 3 months of treatment on sovaldi Ribavirin.  I went for a 3 and 6 month check up.  At the 6 month check up they said I was considered cured.  They didn't mention having to ever go back to be tested again.  I always worry this would pop back up.  What has your experience been after successfully completing treatment with Sovaldi and Riba?  Should I get re tested?  thanks!
  • I am writing this from experience. I am 57 and have been smoking for 3 quarters of my life. I never got addicted and could do with or without at any time.They give me tons of addicting drugs that is terring my mind and body apart.If they would simply swap to weed then my body and head would not only feel better but imilmate most all if not all of my side effects. It is just as a crimal is not...
