How long can an alcoholic (with no intention of stopping), with recent
diagnosis of Hep C expect to survive? Other health problems include
COPD, Emphysema and smoker of 2-3 pack per day. Cardiac testing also showed
left ventricular hypertrophy. A long history of alcohol consumption, current
age of 47 drinking excessively everyday. Consumes hard liquor and beer
daily. He also has numerous open lesions on both forearms. Can these sores be related to the Hep C? Please advise. Can I help him? Extremely concerned!
