HCV Infection with normal abdominal scan

May 27, 2002

I got Lab. Test Reports in which I had positive & Reactive HCV Infection. HIV & HBV were nagative. My ultrasound abdominal scan report said all is NORMAL. Is it possible that one may have HCV Infection with Normal Abdominal Scan? What kind of treatment I need? Please inform me, what kind of treatment i need step by step?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You need to see a doctor who specializes in HCV infection. You need to determine if you are chronically infected, and if so, whether treatment is warranted at this time.
