“I got diagnosed about 10 years ago and did nothing. Recently, I decided to go see a gastroenterologist, but I’m not really sure what to expect. I see people talking about viral load, AST, bili and all kinds of numbers. I would like for some of you to explain what these abbreviations stand for, and maybe give me some ideas on questions I should ask the doctor.”

“I have had PTSD as long as I have had Hep-C. If it comes down to it, I'd rather do without my PTSD meds for three months than my full dose of ribavirin, even though depression can be a monster in itself. If any of you quite knowledgeable folks can clue me in, I would greatly appreciate your putting my mind at ease.”
