Hello all, I'm brand new to this site. Joined a few minutes ago. I will be starting treatment on 9/1 for 6 months. (I am a geno-type 2). I would really like to hear from some people who have gone through treatment. I'd like to hear the side effects you have, secrets of coping, and whether or not it worked for you, and if not, why? I'm SUPER curious to know if joint pain and fatique disappear once the virus is gone. Also, my liver is Stage 2 Fibrosis, going into stage 3. I stopped drinking (beer) 3 months ago. If I completely abstain from alcohol for the rest of my life AND completely rid the virus from my body, what are my chances of getting full-blown chirrosis down the road? (BTW, I've had Hep C for 31 yrs. now and drank quite heavy most all those years, with the exception of 7 years I did quit). I'll check back periodically. Can't wait to read some stories!

I wanted to share treatment notes, but this site is hard to understand. It...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
Today is my 25th birthday, to my somewhat lack of surprise I can see already no one really seems to care.
