Response from Dr. Dieterich
That is really great news! Congratulations on clearing your HCV! It is complicated indeed. Cirrhosis that is not too severe, which we would call Child's A cirrhosis, is indeed often reversible when the virus is cured. If the liver is worse than that, it is very difficult. It sounds to me like you are fine and you should be happy that you have a good cholesterol. Live your life, it is a gift! DTD
Help! Feeling alone and scared regarding HIV testing...
