If you have her c while you are doing treatment can you spread it through unprotected sex or oral
Hi Pamela, the transmission of Hep-C virus is mainly though blood transfusion. Yet transmission via unprotected sex or oral is possible.
If a person infected with Hep-C is in a monogamous sexual relationship, the chance of infection is the same as getting pregnant while taking the birth control pill. I had Hep-C over half my life (66 yrs), my wife stayed clear (32 yr-marriage). The Solvadi-Olysius treatment worked in 2014. I still have a 0 viral load.
Interferon in 2003 did not work. Gave me cataracts in both eyes (surgery).
Someone should make clear that sharing a straw while snorting drugs can infect. Lots of blood vessels in the nose.
I was taken off the liver transplant list recently. My MELD has been 9-10 for a long time.
Seventeen years now with liver failure. I'm a killer in the gym and on my hybrid bicycle. No one believes my age.
Nearly died at UT Hospital in San Antonio. Still had a week to go when my Invasive Radiologist figured it out and repaired a TIPPS. No one had before seen what happened. Took 4 tries in 4 days while I lingered in ICU. Thank God for the wonderful ICU and Surgery teams at U of Texas.
This is why we constantly thank God. I'm happy for you, Mr. Stephens.
This is a very good point, Mr. Stephens, HCV is present in the nasal secretions of intranasal drug users, sharing of contaminated implements, such as straws or spoons, used to nasally inhale cocaine and other powdered drugs can lead to a transmission.

I'm also happy for you that you made through the ICU. Good luck!
