How are you sir. It's great of you to do this service. I and I'm sure many
others really appreciate it.
A July'01 biopsy indicated grade 1 (including peacemeal necrosis)
and stage1. A Nov.'97 biopsy showed grade 1 (no necrosis), stage 0. This
was six months after completing a year long protocol of IFN2b 3x/wk and ribavirin after an initial biopsy
(May'96) of grade 2/ staging 2. I'm fairly sure there was no necrosis here
either. I've had Hepatitis C since about 1980 or '81.
I know I need to go on Pegylated + Ribivirin. Is it safe to wait a year
or two? How long would you guess before I reach stage 2 again? Is the
necrosis a red flag? I think I'm starting to feel more tired lately. The reason I'd like to wait is to settle certain affairs in my life prior to going on medication.
I know I've asked several questions here. Please forgive me. I also
you don't have a crystal ball. However your professional opinion is most
welcomed and would help to relieve
Thanks so much for your
