I have a friend who was just taken off his treatments because he was not responding. He has been convinced by another friend (who is an RN) to leave his home for 2-3 months and move in with her and her family. She claims that he needs a completly sterile environment, sheets washed every day, own toilet and such. I have never heard of such. Hep C can only be spread by blood and body fluids! I worry that he is taking a drastic measure that will only depress him further.
Response from Dr. McGovern
I have also never heard of anything like this. Unwise move.
