after hep c treatment
May 27, 2006
after you finish treatment and are "cured", does your liver self heal itself? or does it stay in the same state it was before the treatment? in other words if i was stage 1, will my liver always be stage 1? or will it heal itself and become stage 0 ?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Good question. We now have data which suggests that when someone is cured of their hepatitis C, their liver health continues to improve over time - including those with very advanced liver disease.
