Jeff, welcome to the forum! I was diagnosed with chronic active hep C (CAHC) in March of '93 per biopsy. My only symptom was constant fatigue (still is.) Did you have any treatment at all? I did go on Interferon, which was the only thing available at the time, but my white count plummeted and I was taken off. I didn't follow up with newer treatments. In May of '05, nearly a year ago, I was diagnosed with hepatacellular carcinoma, as a direct result of the hep C. I have a huge malignant tumor taking up most of the right lobe, and it is inoperable as it has metastasized to the inferior vena cava. I just had chemoembolization on April 7th, to try to reduce the tumor's size and halt blood flow to the tumor and also stop some shunting of blood from the liver to the lungs and diaphragm.
The biopsy will tell them if you have cirrhosis. If so, you would not be accepted for treatment, as far as I know, but you could possibly have a transplant.
Please come back and give us more information, and also the results of your upcoming biopsy.
