Howdy ya'll! I had Hep c for over34 years. I am a Hep C (5) protocol survivor.Its been 2 years since i cleared! Hep c caused hi cholesterol ( over 500).i had double bypass surgery at 50y/o. My viral load exceeded 5- 10 million more often than not. But i survived. I learned that I am stronger than disease an events of trauma .I will read an answer as I can. The meds today are a lot different than what I took.I am on medicaid an each state has problems meeting budget costs for meds. Florida was wonderful to me.I never heard " No" . That may not be the case now.I do know people here in this part of Colorado have problems getting treated .Thank you for this forum.None of this was available when I got the letter from RedCross.Then Hep c was called Non A/Non B.I am so thankful
Thanks for sharing your story. I can see that you have had a few health challenges. I also had HepC for a long time and remember that letter from the Red Cross very well.
I recently cleared on the new medication (still waiting for the 24 week post treatment milestone) but all kudos to you for clearing the virus under that older and much tougher treatment regime.
Hopefully we can keep sharing our stories and spreading the word.
