 Just wanted to update you all, I went to the DR yesterday and found out that my Viral load is 201,000. He told me that from his exam that my Liver feels smooth but slightly enlarged.
 I now have to have a biopsy suppose to be scheduled sometime soon. He said that my other lab numers were good except for a slight elavation of my ALT or something.
  I felt a little better after I got out of there. He seemed positive and said he didnt think it was that bad but only the biopsy can tell for sure.....Wish my luck with the biopsy as I am scared but he said he will but me to sleep thank goodness.....

Soonersfan don't worry , It's really not bad . It hurts a little after. Then the pain subsides within 3-4 days. I went for my first one and they made a mistake and missed the liver and took a sample of my colon and lymph node. So it had to be done again a week later we asked for it to be done using a scan of some type. So another Dr. did it and I was fine but my news was'nt. Hope you do well (I know youll be fine) and your results are fine. GOOD LUCK,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,june

Good luck on your upcoming biopsy. June is right they are not really that painful. You are somewhat sore afterwards and have to lay fairly still for a couple of hours. Hoperuflly the results will come back with good news for you. Keep us posted
