"Now I'm cured from Hep-C I owe my life really to the nurses at "

About: New Victoria Hospital (Glasgow)

(as the patient),

I went through 48 weeks of Interferon and ribavirin treatment for Hep-C geno 1. I was very ill during the treatment and needed 24 hour support. Dr. Datta was the specialist although Christine McTaggart (nurse) and Lesley Graham both liver specialists helped me through this invasive and horrible treatment, If it wasn't for the constant support I may have quit as I was very ill. Then after 72 weeks Christine Munro (nurse) told me the news that the hep-C was gone and I was cured. They gave me life when I only thought of miserable death caused by my old self and addiction. Now I'm cured I owe my life really to Christine McTaggart.
