My sister has hepitis c and is going on her 2nd year o remission.But she just lost her husband and she doesn't seem to feel well most of the time,she is getting over a upper respitory infection now.Do we have cause for alarm or do we need to stay calm and see what her next blood work shows.
Response from Dr. Jackson
If your sister does not have detectable hepatitis C virus more than one year after stoppinng treatment, then she has likely cleared the virus.
