Louanna, I am so very sorry that your daughter has gotten herself into such a lifestyle that has caused her to contract hep C. She is so young. When you say she is going for her first treatment on Thurs., what do you mean? Hep C treatment? There is no way she can get treatment for her hep C as long as she is using drugs and drinking. You need to get her to detox and an inpatient treatment program for her drug and alcohol abuse before anything else. Since she is a minor, you can do so by getting it court-ordered, if necessary. Symptoms from hep C take decades to surface. She may have had an acute case in the hospital and her immune system could possibly knock it out. However, I would be more concerned right now about the continued IV drug use and alcohol use than anything else. Please get help for her!
