[QUOTE=erk;2772498]Hello All,

It has been a long time since I have posted to this forum, probably 2 or 3 years, and I am curious to know how long have you folks had this disease?

Me? I became infected in 1968 due to many blood transfusions required from an Vietnam war injury.

I was diagnosed with Hep C in 2002 during a routine physical exam at my local Veteran's hospital....needless to say I was shocked and like many of you was afraid about what this all meant.

Well, after 40 years my liver is at what is called Stage 2 where Stage 4 is cirrhosis. My health is good, I have a good diet, and I still have one or two drinks a week. I have read that small amounts of alcohol do not impact how quickly the disease progresses. This, of course, is my own personal decision.

Anyway, I am just curious to know if there are other long time heppers out there and what your experiences over the years have been?

Take care everyone and please try not to worry too much. It is possible to have a long normal life with hep C


I am not a long term hepper...only had it for five to six years from iv drug use that ended five years ago. Have you thought about treatment being at a stage 2?
