Hep C ?
Jul 8, 2006
Hello Everybody, I, Am 50 Year Old Male Who Went For A Complete Physical And Just Found Out That I Have The Hep C. As Far As Knowing How And When I Got It Remains A Mystery Like For Most Of Us. For Myself I Believe It Was Back In 1975-1978 When I Was Using The Needle. I Never Had Any Reason To Have Blood Work Done Or Have A Physical So I Didn't Know, If I Had Known I Maybe Would Have Cut Out Some Things. I Don't Have Insurance So It Makes Things A Little Harder To Get This Test And That Test Done. I Had An Ultrasound And A Liver Biopsy So Far. The Results Are: No Scarring Or Cirrhosis Which Is Great, My Enzyme Level Is At 70, My Viral Load Is 2.6 Million, Alfa Feta Protein Is 2.3, My Pca Is 1.6, They Called It Stage 1 Grade 0. My Questions Are About The Drinking And I Know What The Livers Functions Are And About The Hep C, But Could Having One Glass Of Wine Or A Beer Every Night Be That Harmful To You. What About The Meds, I Take One Pain Pill Every Morning Plus Anti-depressants, Xanax, High Blood Pressure Meds. On The Good Side I Drink At Least 80-100 Oz. Of Water Everyday And Take Milk Thistle With Each Meal. The Dr Said The Alcohol Is Worse, But Such A Small Amount I Don't Know. I Am Just Looking For Some Input From The People In The Same Condition. Thanks For Your Time And Response. God Bless Us All!!
