Hello everyone! Thanks for the advice on my first question. Now I will be the annoying newcomer with several questions. Not only do I have hep c doc says I have a very fatty liver. On a good day, soaking wet, not having gone to bathroom, dead of winter I weigh 140. I am down to 132 right now. Very slim man but still a fine specimen of a man. Anybody else have this problem? I eat alot of rice, fresh and frozen veggies, fruits and not much meat.Just wondering. Also, any ideas about dealing with insurance companies? Was supposed to be on clinical trial by Roche which added a pill to standard treatment but was turned down.7 slots,100 people.Go figure.Now waiting on insurance co to decide.Don't understand how I can pay for years and then when I need it no go.Hmmm.I forget who made the comment about stages and years but doc says I have had it for 30 years and am at stage 3. She also said I have 5 to 10 yrs left without treatment. Any body else get that from their doc's?Also any vets that had shots given by the Army in the early 80's.Any connections?WHEW!!!Told ya'll I would be the annoying newcomer. Take care and warm fuzzies to all!
