He should take the treatment while its free and he is locked up. Maybe it will work. What's his genotype?

Default Don't panic

In the prison i just got out of, a LOT of guys have Hep C. It was the disease I most worried about getting, not because it's the most serious, but because it's very contagious.

The best case scenario for a patient is to get a comprehensive blood panel of the various liver enzymes as well as liver function tests. If those are already abnormal, an ultrasound is a good idea to see if any scarring has taken place. Remember tho, that even if the liver is 75% destroyed, the person can survive! Also, many patients shed the virus out of their system in time. That last reason, in addition to the ridiculously high cost of interferon and other drugs, means that an inmate may be told by his doctor to wait and see.

It can be a manageable illness, and it can be cured. Best of luck to all who suffer from any liver ailments.
