I'm a 29 year-old male and I was diagnosed wit
h Hep C (genotype 1a) in November 2010 after a routine blood test
. I, for the lif
e of me, have
no idea how I got it
. The most likely candidate is
that I got it
just after birth in 1981 (I was a blue baby and needed some blood transfusions).
Anyway, I got a biopsy done this
past January and the results were good: Stage 1 Fibrosis
, no red flags.
I started triple therapy wit
h Incivek, Ribavirin, and Pegasys around mid-September.
