Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to HCM Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. There is definitely no contraindication to liver transplantatio and actually cirrhosis due to chronic hepatitis C viral infection has become the leading indication for liver transplantation. So just have faith and since you dont have associated diseases as you mentioned, I am sure that possible transplantation would be more than succesful. Most people dont know how HEP C infection happened. Unfortunately it is not transmissed only by needles or sexual contact. There are many other possible ways. But it is not important at this point and you cant change it. You need to focus on your health now and find strength and patiency for further treatment. Wish you good health. Regards
