Have decided to pay for my treatment via this site but the main thing I am worried about is being monitored whilst on them. Just got off the phone with my liver specialist and they have told me in no uncertain terms that they would not monitor me if i was to go down this route.

I'm pretty sure we can find someone in your area to order the needed tests at the required times.
