1a, have had virus 32 years, was diagnosed due to symptoms (extreme fatigue for about 3 years, depression
, strange rashes, spider nevi, no palmar erythema, hair thinning - felt like sh**). Labs were OK, though - until 2003 (which is when I was diagnosed). A CBC showed platelets down some, enzymes up to near 100, rbcs and wbcs were down. Hep panel was done. Biopsy June 2003 showed Grade 3/ stage 2, viral load 400,000. Tx recommended. Pulled within the month due to complications.
