Welcome to the hep forum, Jerry. We are a support group of those with all sorts of liver disease, and those who love them. My husband has the sick liver in our house.

Themister was Hep C GT3a. He treated twice with interferon/riba before the new treatments were available. Luckily, he was cured of Hep C several years ago but the damage was done. He has been very ill for several years now and is waiting for a transplant.

We would love to know more about you and your journey with liver disease. And if you could, please post the source of the treatment guidelines for you. Again, Welcome! Big Hugs
