HCV Load/9 Mil/end-stage figures?

Jan 8, 2011

I was infected in with the HEP C/GENO TYPE 1 virus in 1978, my most recent viral load count was close to 9-million. In alot of pain/ascites, etc.. Does my HCV VL count sound like end-stages?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although the viral load is slightly above average, it appears that other symptoms may indicate more advanced liver disease and not just the viral load level. I assume you are under the care of a liver specialist who can assess your situation more fully.

Starting Treatment?
do I need to go to the hospital
