Shanie, thank you for starting a new topic, as I had suggested. In your previous post, I don't believe you mentioned that your dad is in the prison system. This could affect any possible treatment, as he will have to be treated wherever they tell him. As PG suggested, there is a lot of information in the Hepatitis Resources folder. Since every case is different, it's virtually impossible to say how long someone has left to live. I was diagnosed with hep C in '93. In '05, I was diagnosed with liver cancer and was treated at Mayo for that. And I'm still here. Just spend as much time as you can with him, which I know may be difficult.
That is encouraging news about the doctor. Keep fighting for your dad!
Our prayers are with you and your father, Shanie.
