I have a very close friend that was on Harvonni treatment

Customer Question

I have a very close friend that was on Harvonni treatment for Hep "C". It took her 6 months to get rid of the hepatitis. Meanwhile 3months prior to receiving the treatment, the Ultrasound showed 2 spots on the liver. The hospital where she received treatment, told her they would watch it closely, but after being Hep"c"free she was told she had Cronic Cirrosis of the liver & would need a liver to live. She has continued to drink 14 beers on a good day &more on a bad day & now has decided she does not want a transplant. My question to you is how long will she live at the rate she continues to drink daily???? A very concerned friend Dee
