Thanks for contacting HCM. You tell us that you have had the diagnosis
of Hep-C for over ten years. You also say that you are not on any interferon
therapy. I am not sure if you were treated with any anti-viral therapy
I am also not sure about your liver function tests and viral count.
You need these to assess the status of the activity of the virus.
There are very effective drugs that can cure Hep-C and acheive complete
clearing of the virus. There are a number of options that you can discuss
with a specialist who deals with hepatitis
and has experience.
is a Beta Blocker
and can reduce your pulse rate and help
. Swelling of the feet may indicate fluid retention from liver
disease and you may have fluid build up in the abdomen as well.
This needs to be checked with a sonogram of the liver and abdomen.
If you have not seen your doctor recently, please make an appointment
and you can discuss the things that I mention above and take appropriate
action to get healthy.
I wish you the very best.
