Hi, Rayann, and welcome to the forum! I have hep C, cirrhosis, and am a liver cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with hep C in '93, but know I contracted it in the late 60s. It usually takes 10-20 years to become symptomatic. Does your husband drink? If so, he needs to stop...not only for his liver's sake but because he cannot qualify for a transplant if he drinks. Do you know what the "other problems" are that have prevented him from getting a transplant? Is he still on the list and, if so, how high is he on the list? Has he had problems with ascites and edema (fluid in the belly and swollen feet, ankles, calves?) Has he had bleeding varices? Where is he being seen?
As PG mentioned, there is a lot of info for you to read in the Hepatitis Resource folder. Also, the posts here will teach you a lot. In addition, you will receive a lot of support here. Don't forget to take care of yourself!
