Are you a medical professional? I may be either confused or simply misinformed but I currently believe that by committing to the combo treatment of Interferon and Ribaviron, that I could rid my body of the Hep C virus. I believe that the damage my liver has suffered will probably never be repaired. I understand that as long as I have this liver damage that alcohol consumption could lead to further damage my liver even if I no longer was under attack by Hep C. I will not be seeing my doctor for 2 more weeks. At that time I will continue to ask more questions in order to gain a better understanding of what I am currently attempting to do. Several celebrities have had much publicized bouts with this decease, most notable being Naomi Judd. She took off a year or 2 to under go a treatment I believe to be simular to what I am currently doing. Several years later, she resurfaced and declared herself cured. Was this truthful or false hope? I also know the David Crosby was diagnosed with Hep C which along with alcohol and drug abuse caused severe liver damage ultimately resulting in a transplant. Do you think he still have the virus and if so won't it begin to attack his new liver?

Hope is something that all of us cling to when dealing with sickness. Is it false hope that my doctor stated to me that this treatment had a 40% plus success rate? Thank you for your reply.
