Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"

Hi, Kit, and welcome to the forum! The first thing I would recommend is a hepatologist. If your new doc is primary care, have him refer you to one. Can you tell us a bit about yourself? I was diagnosed with hep C per biopsy in '93. I had been experiencing extreme fatigue for at least 2 years prior to that. The doc I had in '91 said my liver enzymes were a little elevated but "nothing to worry about." At that time, though, there was not even a test for hep C. That doctor transferred to a different office, and the doc I was assigned after him was wonderful. She sent me to a GI doc just as soon as the hep C test was positive.

Hope to see you here again soon.

WElcome Kit, I have been a Forum member for about 6 months. I have found the site very beneficial. I have Autoimmune hepatitis - not hep c. you will find the site a place where you can vent your feelings when you have the need - to ask for advice and to compare notes on your illness. Everyone here it so supportive and helpful. I just wish i had more time so I could post more regularly - and live in the same time zone so I could chat more often.

Take care, Talk to you again.
