I doubt I brought anything new to the conversation beyond that of an afterthought, but I figured it couldn't hurt to states my two cents.
FTR, My wife's dad had HEP-C. It was a terrible disease and he suffered greatly because of it. Except that in his case, he had sclerosis(<-right term) of the liver. Which made things 10x worst insofar as treatments went.
Having said that, I do hope you can find relief whatever that may be.
Have you had any success with Miracle-Mineral-Supplement in the past?
