I know you've probably already answered this a million times and the life span can vary but how long do I have to live? I have HCV

HCV is a treatable infection and with the new drugs that will be coming soon, the treatment will be more effective.
So this is great news for you and the millions of people who have HCV infection. Not everyone develops liver disease too...
when should I start the treatment?
