I found out I have hep c geno type1 two years ago. My viral load is only 120,000. My liver biopsy came back good. I think I got hepc 22 years ago when I was a drug user. Thank god I'm not a big drinker and I quit doing drugs 22 years ago. I have been advised by my doctors to do treatment. I have a 1 year old baby to take care of. My parents said they would live with me and help through the treatment. Do I do it now while I have help, or wait and see if it gets bad? I appreciate your thoughts on this.
