i was diagnosed with hepc 2b with less than stage 1 liver biop. one doc. said i could be 80% cured with a 12 week treatment. this doc.is on maternity leave until april. i wanted to wait until then but started thiking i might want to get it over with, so i called the office to see another doc. he said on the phone that stusies show a 24 week program is better. my life is as follows... i work at home doing childcare with another person. we care for ten children each day. i sometimes work 10 hours/5 days a week. very tiring but i love it. we have quite a few billslike most people, i have to work, i do have someone that will work a few days at my home if i am sick after starting the treatments. i don't plan on being wimpy or sick but i also dont want to jump into this blind. for those have gone before me on this journey what do you recommend? start the treatment and be done with it or should i wait and get financially more stable? i am very frightened. 12 weeks seemed doable but now 24 weeks seems so long. can anyone advise me on this?
