Welcome, Blessed1. Who diagnosed your son? Lucy gave you good advice, but I also would suggest that you find a gastroenterologist (GI doc) or preferably a hepatologist (doc that specializes in diseases of the liver.) I've never heard of a person that young going through hep C treatment. You need to find out if his hep C is chronic or chronic active. If it's chronic, it means that he has contracted it but his immune system threw it off and no treatment is required. If it's active, it means that it's still attacking his liver. You then need to find out if he can have treatment. Just take it a step at a time. You will find a lot of info and support in this forum.
