OP, you are walking corpse if you don't do something about it now, you can use both traditional and modern medicine, you really need help as soon as possible. I remember when I had hepatitis B, though not as Viral as Hepatitis C in 2003 it was only by God grace that I survive, even the doctors believe it was miracle. Even the student doctor was promoted because of my case in Lagos island general hospital.


Hepatitis B may scar the liver (cirrhosis) and lead to liver cancer. Hepatitis C: Formerly known as "non-A, non-B hepatitis," hepatitis C is the most common form of viral hepatitis. ... Hepatitis C also infects up to 90 percent of HIV-infected injection drug users. And it is more severe in patients with HIV.

How does someone get infected?

Re: I Tested Positive To Hepatitis C by Bodingo: 8:30pm On Mar 11
I thought that Hepatitis C can only be transmitted through blood sharing.

For Cheap treatment, good general hospital will be of good help, combine the treatment with herbs.

Good day fam.

Please help me with suggestions, I was having stomach discomfort, went for normal check up and I was told I tested positive to hepatitis C. (never heard of it before now) thought it was something I'd just take drugs but doctor said its a viral infection and explained to me after that I was shocked and felt very bad.

I went to 3 different labs again, 2 came out positive, I negative. Then I went back to my doctor, he said I should go for viral load test that it will cost about 30k for the test.

The doctor also said they have treatment but a month will cost me 170k and the treatment will last for 6months (that's over 1 million)

I can't afford that money and he also said that after treatment my test will always be positive but the viral load will be zero (meaning that I will be free of the virus but that the result will always be positive)

I have done some research and I noticed hepatitis c affects the liver, there are some people online that claim they have the drugs and that at the end of using their drug, I will never test positive to the virus again.

I am devastated and confused, depressed is an understatement. Please any experienced doctor or pharmacy or anyone that ever experienced such or know someone.

Please save my life....


Read about Pamela Anderson the Baywatch star whose ex hubby gave her hepatitis C. She's still alive.
Read her story I think she finally tested negative after both orthodox and Ayurvedic treatment.

Some doctors need to face firing squad! That's how one doctor put fear for my guy body and collected thousands of naira so many years back for gonorrhoea matter. Doctor kept calling high sounding names and blowing grammar everywhere. In fact he said my friend was a walking corpse.

Flee from that naval doc. He wants to treat you privately and pocket that money. Your best bet is to go to a general/ government hospital.
Avoid herbal. Wish I have the time to explain

Please i beg you in the name of God, do NOT patronize any useless drug seller online! Don't add to your problems!

This is for everybody else! There is health insurance in Nigeria. NHIS cost just 15k per annum and would have covered this cost. It is late for the OP to start that now as it takes minimum of 3 months to process NHIS. Others should not wait till they need health insurance before getting it.

Two Options I will lay out for you. Any of them will work. Just remain focused and believe.

1. We all can rally around on Nairaland and contribute money for your treatment. We can raise a thread for that while the Mods will actively advertise the thread. The money that will be raised will cover your treatment. However, people like sincerity thus, you must publish your Med records to enhance believe.

2. Prayer of Faith. You will enter into a prayer of faith declaring your healing in the blood of Jesus. Take the communion for 7days and as you eat the bread and drink of the wine, you will release the healing power of Jesus on your Liver. Place your hands on the Liver and declare the promise of the healing power of the Holyspirit on your organ.

Joanna, I have seen the miraculous and tasted the undiluted power of healing in Christ Jesus. I have also seen men walk to the hospital and recieve treatment. Anyone your heart carries will work for you.

Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C (HBV and HCV) are viral diseases. In fact, Hepatitis C kills more people in Nigeria than HIV/AIDS. It's often called the Silent Killer because of the apparent lack of awareness of it's causes and effects among the general population.
However, it's treatable (at least, the viral load can be greatly reduced) with proper medication. You will need to make drastic changes to your lifestyle, health management, diet, etc. You will have to be VERY strict with the treatment regimen.
Please go to a teaching/reference hospital. Private medical facilities will take all your money.

Viral load test can't be 30k. It is actually between 5k to 7k in many labs.

Be wary of that doctor.
Stop lying Mr Man. At my diagnostic center in Lagos, viral load is 36k.

Hepatitis B and C are highly prevalent in Lagos. Unfortunately, no one is talking about it. On average, 3 in 10 persons that comes for serology test are positive for either hepatitis B or C. Most commonly route for this viral infection is through sex. Though blood transfusion account for a small percentage (especially unscreened blood).

Guys!! Stay away from unprotected sex. Stop given your friends keys to your bedroom to have sex with call-girls. Vaginal or penile Secretions from positive individuals ( on the mattress or bedsheets) if in contact with broken skin may lead to Establishment of hepatitis C.

Re: I Tested Positive To Hepatitis C by Spatta: 8:39pm On Mar 11
I am not a Doctor, Our Doctors have better counsel i must admit, From your story, you have been tested Positive for Hepatitis C, Viral diseases is common among people, many times it is not caused by what we all know to be the major course, (Promiscuity)
It could be as a result of an infection from an infected persons or contacts with them, However in many cases it is as a result of unprotected sex and many times infection from Blood and spits
So you may get infected through Sex, through Kissing and using items or contact with one with the disease

"Hepatitis C is an inflammation of the liver due to a viral infection. The virus that causes the infection is called hepatitis C virus (HCV). A person contracts the hepatitis C virus by coming into contact with infectious fluids and secretions from someone else who is already infected with hepatitis C virus."



It is worse than Hepatitis B which is also a viral disease
But there are medication,
People Live with Hepatitis B and sometimes are unaware until when they begin to have symptoms


Hepatitis C however is a monster, Your body may be able to fight it if you take medical precautions
The first stage in getting Help is Contacting a Doctor, and to get a Viral Load which will tell you the extent of Damage


The Hepatitis C virus is considered “cured” if the virus is not detected in your blood when measured with a blood test 3 months after treatment is completed. This is called a sustained virologic response (SVR) and data suggest that you will stay virus free indefinitely.


Viekira Pak: Approved December 2014. Viekira Pak is an interferon-free, all oral cure for hepatitis C for patients who have genotype 1 infections, including those with cirrhosis. The combination is ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and ritonavir pills, combined with dasabuvir pills. It is sometimes used with ribavirin.



Sorry, It is called Big Man disease in Nigeria because it is expensive, However abroad some of the facilities are made available because of better Health institution

Blame Nigerian wicked Government some of them have it too and they have abandon Nigeria to steal the resources by under developing out Medical facilities

Gilead Sciences priced the treatment at $1000 per pill, making the total cost of the treatment $84,000. Gilead then combined sofosbuvir with a new drug, ledipasvir, to create the even more effective combination treatment, Harvoni. Harvoni's total treatment cost is $94,500 for a 12-week regimen


Do not Panic, there are Medical experts in Lagos and Abuja that are very good in handling such conditions
It is not beyond solution But find out the Viral loads first and they will start you on the Medication

Consult with your Doctor. It is not the end of the world, People Live with if they get the right Treatment
