Hi so I am starting Peg intron and Rebetol therapy on Jan. 23, 2012 for 6 months. I have Geno type 2. I'm a vegetarian and the doctor believes (due to my life style) I may have contracted this through Vertical Transmission. My biological mother was a drug addict and her autopsy shows she died of liver failure/cirrhosis. Of course I'm scared about starting treatment but the doctor Edwin Montell says there is an 80% cure rate.. Any comments from anyone who has completed or going through this treatment? Thanks for your time and support.
