I got my test results back yesterday and found out that like most I am a Genotype 1. My viral load is 65,000 which I know is a blessing since so many of us have viral loads in the millions. They want me to do a Biopsy. I have a friend that had one done and she said that she would rather die than ever have it done again, and that is really scary. The GI told me that when they do it they could accidentally puncture my lung or my gallbladder, or they may not get enough of a sample and have to do it again!! They told me that I could start Treatment with out the Biopsy, so I guess what I really want to know is the benefits of it, Its not going to change my treatment or the dosage, is it? If that is true what is the benefit of it besides knowing a better % of how my treatment may or may not respond? I'm just confused.
