I don't know what I can say that would help.There is no simple magic cure. He has to somehow see that this is a big problem and decide to change his life style. No one around him can make that decision for him.Maybe you can plan an intervention. Sometimes that can be successful but if he isn't ready then it might not work.I will keep you in my prayers.
My husband has hep c. He got it when he was younger. He recently had to go to the er and found out his liver enzymes are elevated. He had surgery on his fooot about a month or so ago and the dr gave him lortabs, knowing he has hep c. The dr asked him at his pre op if he needed more and of course he said yes. He is an addict that grew up on a house where pills were abused. He has always had an addictive nature. He won't throw away the rest after the nurse at the er told him that he shouldn't be taking them. I've had surgery 5 times and know that it don't hurt that long afterward. Noone I know has needed refills after surgery. He is in denial and won't accept the fact that he's getting hooked on them. He takes them like he's supposed to but after months of taking them everyday and his past addiction problems, he says when he runs out he won't take anymore. I don't want to lose him and I'm scared to death. He's only 23 and had it since he was 17. I'm so frustrated. Any advice???
