“I am 53 yrs young, Geno 1a, currently F4 Fibrosis. Today, I found out I was Q80k positive and I had about a 60% chance of reaching SVR.  I was very upset and disappointed since I feel this is such a low percentage after reading so much on cure of over 93%. Should I treat and deal with the sides, or wait for something better to come along?”

“Recently I was diagnosed with cryoglobulinemia. My research tells me that it is a potentially serious complication of Hep C occurring in 30% of cases, causing vasculitis with potential kidney, lung, and other organ damage. Yikes! Is there anyone who has this condition, or knows something about it, who can give me any information from a PATIENT'S point of view?”
