If her liver function tests have been coming back normal, she still has a healthy liver, despite having Hep C. I was diagnosed more than 10 years ago, I get checked every year, and my liver is fine. I’m not an expert on the disease, but I was told by two doctors that some people simply carry Hep C and never develop any symptoms. IOW, I’ll most likely die of something else.
I’m upset that Pamela is saying she’s going to die in ten years, because there are probably thousands of people diagnosed with Hep C who will panic and think that they are going to die too.
From what I’ve read about Naomi Judd, her disease progressed to where she had severe symptoms, and she had to retire. She’s doing okay now but probably doesn’t have the stamina for touring again.
I’m no expert, and everyone who has Hep C should pay attention to it and educate themselves, but it does seem like Ms. Anderson is being a bit melodramatic here.
