Hep C and Blood Transfusions


Posted by Paulette

It discuss me to see an article on this site suggesting that Hep C is a junkies disease as written on this site under causes.  I contacted Hep C by a blood transfusion right here in the USA before 1990 when they started screening the blood.

The article is in the Hep C site under causes.

 SUGGESTING THAT IT IS CONTACTED BY BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS RECIEVED ABROAD

NO WONDER WE DON'T HAVE FOUDATIONS TO RAISE MONEY FOR A CURE FOR THIS DISEASE.

What about all the nurses and docters that have this horrible disease??????

From needle sticks..........................

I got hep-c whene i was about 20yr does that make me a skumbag ? By the way i was using drugs.
chronic hepatit can occur with Hep C infection. Chronic infection follows acute hepatitis in50-70% CASES. CIRRHOSIS and HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA are the major complications as duration of disease increases
I'm a doctor n got a good no. of needle pricks while in the casualty...so may be every one in health profession are at risk and so its no junkies disease...

I deleted a comment to try to edit it and can't seem to post again.   Dang!
