Last week I received the news that I am HCV positive. Geno 1a with slightly above normal enzymes. PCR is not back yet. Yesterday I went to see a Hep doc in Napa, CA and he put it to me this way "You can start treatment now since you know that you have it, or we can do a biopsy next week to see if there is any scaring etc." He said that if there is no sign of liver damage, I could wait and not do the treatment. I am 48 and to the best of my knowledge, I got this when I was around 20. Clean and Sober since 1990 and scared to death!! I hate the thought of getting a needle stuck in my gut but at the same time, I think I want to know where my liver stands. Can anybody give me advice? Thanks
