    The sad thing is that, in PA at least, they do not treat HCV. They sonar your liver and when that indicates tissue damage they will treat the disease. On the reasoning that it costs less, because some people never develop Lvier problems. Don’t even think about asking about all the new infections created while you wait. I was called an idiot for thinking that would be a problem. Time to head into the woods.
