I have recently been diagnosed with HCV; geno: 1;stage: 0-1; grade: 1. I am possible eligible to begin treatment through a trial. I had been leaning toward watchful waiting, but the trial is making me reconsider. When I read all the symptoms and suffering on this site just now, I am beginning to think I am crazy to consider tx (I gather from reading that tx means "treatment"). My HCV probably has been in my system since 1983 when I had a blood transfusion right after the birth of my twins. I believe my biggest symptom is fatigue. I wold appreciate any advice from those of you who have already made this decision. Thank you. Mam2twins

Hi all :)I am new here and hope to get some support/answers.. My dad was a heavy drinker for as long as I can remember. He was diagnosed with end stage cirrhosis a year ago (he was warned for many years prior but chose to ignore the Dr's). He stopped drinking 7 months ago after they did the TIPS procedure as a last resort to try and help him. He had portal hypertension, varisces (non bleeding)...
My spouse was diagnosed with fatty liver a couple of years ago. He never quit drinking. Lately he has chronic right foot swelling. Could this be cirrohosis or would both feet be swollen?
