drinking alcohol with hepc
Feb 9, 2008

My sister just lost her husband. She has Hep C and is drinking everyday. I almost think she has a death wish. How long will she last if she keeps that behavior up.

This is difficult to say, but you should try to get her into care/detox as soon as possible. Not just for the sake of her liver, but for other potential complications as well.
