How frightening this must be. Please hand in there and don't give up hope. You have found the right place for support and information. You are not alone and we all care about you. Others will be able to give you more advice regarding hepatitis C but I wanted to welcome you.

Hugs and prayers,

Barbara

Hi KmD, you also have messages on your other post. You are not alone I promise you that Myself & others are in here several times a day. Say what it is you need to talk about first & then we'll go from there sweetie. I for one will be watching your post to give you as much support as I am able too. Take care & hang in there. Talk to us. Where ever you want to start.After you read your messages in your other post you might want to take it off & just use the one post. Less confusing that way . later....

KMD, the ultrasound is painless.  It is ordered to get a better look at the liver, watching for signs of cirrhosis or tumors.  They will use a sensor and a type of jelly (it's cold!), and will  run the sensor over your entire abdomen, focusing on the right side under the ribs, where the right lobe of the liver is.  You will be asked to take a breath and hold it a number of times.  You will probably also be asked to turn on your left side, and perhaps your right.  There is a monitor the technician looks at as she's doing the test.  It takes about 35-45 min.  You will then be asked to wait while they make sure they got all the pictures they need.  If so, you can go home.  Your doctor will give you the results of the ultrasound.  Try calling your doc on Mon. for results.

How did you happen to get diagnosed with hep C?  Were you having fatigue?  It normally takes many years before symptoms even appear, except for flu-like symptoms when you first contract it (which I don't remember having.)  For example, in my case, I contracted my hep C through IV drugs I used for a short period of time in the late 60s (sharing needles.)  I didn't have symptoms for nearly 30 years.  I was also positive for hep B, but I have the antibody...which means I cannot get it again nor can I give it to anybody else.  My immune system knocked out the hep B.

There is almost no chance of getting hep C via sexual intercourse.  In fact, I have personally never heard of anyone getting it this way, although I have read that it is a possibility, as well as using the toothbrush of someone with hep C.  I would think the only way that would happen is if both parties had open sores in their mouths and shared a toothbrush.  Hep C is a blood-borne disease, and is usually contracted through a transfusion or IV drug use with shared needles.

If you have AOL, you can IM me if you see me online.  (Put me on your buddy list.)  I don't want to download AIM or another program, as I have a lot of programs on my puter already and memory is low.
 
Take some deep breaths and try to calm down.  You are going to be okay.  You can get treatment, if necessary, and you WILL beat this disease!
 
Connie

Hi KMD,
Like everyone here, I know how you are feeling.  I'm 20 years old and have hepatitis c also.  I found out when I was 15 and understand the feeling of panicing because you don't know what to expect. If you want to talk send me an email at mhooke1@towson.edu or aol sn Mo885.  Don't worry, you'll be ok!
