Saw The Doctor Yesterday ...

I saw my Hepatologist (Liver Doc) yesterday and this is what I learned. My viral load (which means how many times the virus has replicated in my system) is very high at 110,000,000. The cirrhosis they saw is more extensive then they first thought. The doctor is starting me on a fairly powerful medication called Viread - originally approved by the FDA in 2001 to treat HIV patients, and in 2008 approved to treat Hepatitis B (HBV) patients

That is all I know right now ...I want to thank everyone for the incredible support! Thank you Thank you Thank you! As soon as I know more I will update.

All my best,
