(pronounced: hep-cee)

 HEPATITIS C pronounced hep cee

What is it?The result of a heinous virus with one aim: to destroy your liver. There may be no symptoms until your liver is seriously damaged, which will cause a flu-like fever, tiredness, sickness and agonising stomach pain. Oh, and you’ll turn yellow. The worst-case scenario is liver failure which will cause you to require a transplant. Waiting on a donor list, permanently attached to tubes and swimming in steroids, is probably not how you envisaged the next two to four years of your life, right?
