I was diagnosed about 6 years ago. My husband also. I knew about the treatment because my brother went through it. I was terrified by what I saw with him so I have not gone back to the doctor since being diagnosed. I believe the doctor said I had a viral count of 2 million...I can't remember. I had a liver biopsy that came back with no damage and no changes to my liver. She said it was my choice to have or not have the treatment since there was no liver damage . She also said I could live my entire life with no problems. But...there was also a chance I could have problems. Now I've reached a point where I woudn't be able to afford the treatment if decided to try it. I know I should go back to the doctor but I'm so afraid to. I'm sure you all think I'm crazy but I have had alot of reasons for not taking the meds. I don't even know why I'm here talking about it. I feel like I'm trapped! Sorry
