Hep C Question
Aug 6, 2005

Hi, I am 25 years old, got hep c from blood trans at birth...biopsy is 2/2...I have just taken 7 shot (on peg and co-peg)...I have no sides and feel better on tx...could this mean its working. Thank you.


Response from Dr. McGovern

Not necessarily.

The proof of its effect will be when you test your viral load to see if it is going down.

Take all doses of medication since adherence counts.
