Re: Digest Number 30
- i would just like to ask two questions
1) how many of you feel those with hep c should get vaccinated for hep a
i hear it can be quite dangerous if hep c people get hep a or b.
2) how often do u feel hep c pos people should have biopsies?
I had my first i 1991 i think, then a year later. Back then they told me
i should have them yearly, but after two, the decided it was not the
way. But since its been eight years, i feel like i should have another
one, atleast after i finish treatment in august. So how often should we
get them, since it is the only accurate way to see if there is liver
damage. even if your doc considers you persistent hepper or chronic
hepper, biopsies are the only true way of seeing how your liver is.
Now about brain fog, i have had it for years, even before my
diagnosis,and my teenage drug years. One reason why i feel I've had hep
longer than they think. But since i am an x junkie, docs just assume.
Does anyone else find they had symptoms way before risky behavior or
I hope everyone hangs in there. This disease is my number one concern
right now, and i wish everyone who is on the combo could work less, and
i wish anyone who is not working, could have insurance. I suggest
finding out what hospitals give free care, which usually depends on your
income, and also welfare or state assistance. I am on disability, so my
meds are paid for, otherwise i could not afford $600 every two
weeks.Prior to this, i prided myself in how much i worked, and thought
people who took assistance were weak and not pulling there load. I feel
different now, l now i need assistance, and the government or state or
whom ever can help me for a little bit until i get my feet back on the
My blessings to you all, and thaks for giving me a place toexpress my
