extreme high vl count

Jun 25, 2005

Just got the bad news today, diagnosed w/HepC. VL 7million will have biopsy in a few weeks but with what the doctor says it doesn't seem like the inferon will even help. will i have any other options? I'm extremely over-whelmed with this news I'm 53/F and was mis-diagnosed 1979 w/hep b, lab results now show I never had HepB, doctor says I've probably had HepC since then, will there be any help??

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I think it is premature to indicate that you would have a poor response to treatment.
