Anon - Why do you have to wait eight months for treatment? That seems like a long time to have to wait for medical care.

Treatments vary according to patient needs. Some do not need any medications, just monitoring. Others may be treated with anti-viral medications, and still others may have a liver transplant. You can learn more about the various treatments here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hepatitis-c/DS00097/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs

You might also find it helpful to join a support group, or you are welcome to start on on EmpowHER. We hope you're able to get into treatment sooner, and wish you the best.
