There are non-invasive, accurate tests that can accurately determine liver fibrosis levels. Get one and start treatment. My enzyme levels went from over 200 to 12 & 15 after a month on Harvoni.
My enzyme levels were like yours for many years and like mgalbrai’s dropped to the teens within weeks of starting treatment.
It is never to late to start treatment and put a halt to any damage the virus might be causing.

Hello Rudy, as Dr James said "Treatment will arrest the progress of the disease and allow some recovery". There is very strong evidence that the liver reverses much of the damage once the virus is eliminated, and many patients reported that their F4 level was reduced to F2 or F1 in the months following cure. So it's not too late.
If you start the process of obtaining meds today then you will be able to start treatment and see progress within weeks. My mental outlook completely changed once I had the meds. My anxiety and brain fog began to lift and things got exponentially better. Good luck. I will be looking forward to reading about your journey.
