I'm a Methadone patient with Hep C.
Dear Dr. Chung,
Thanks for your time! I'm a Methadone patient with Hep C. Honestly, I'm worrying myself to death over this Hep C and now facing treatment. My liver biopsy says my liver is stage 2. Seriously, with all of the side effects I'm truly scared to start the Pegulated treatment. HELP?
  Dr Chung Writes-  
If you're genotype 1, you can watch and wait, and do followup liver biopsy. if youre genotype 2 or 3, you may consider treatment, as cure rates exceed 80%.
