drinking alcohol
Jul 8, 2008

I was diagnosed with hep-c and was cured from pegasys RBV therapy.My liver is at stage3.Can I drink alcohol,and could it start my virus again?So my question is would a few beers hurt me?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You will definitely want to discuss this with your doctor as well.

I personally would advise maybe one or two beers on a weekend - but that is it. You had a lot of scarring and it will take a long time for this to improve. Drinking alcohol should be kept to a minimum.

Congrats on the great HCV outcome!

Can you get HCV from drink/food if there is boold?
Can I rest my case now; please help pregnant woman!
