I heard this is a chick who has tested positive for Hepatitis C out there. She’s new so hasn’t done much but how can anyone let her work knowing she has hep c? How are these dickhead agents getting away with booking these girls knowing they have these serious medical issues?
Someone is spreading a rumor that there is currently an active female performer in LA that has Hepatitis C but she claims it was cured. The question is, can hepatitis C really be cured? Or is this girl just full of shit?
For decades now Pamela Anderson has suffered from Hep C. That’s where I first learned about it. It’s a very serious viral infection that can cause major damage to your liver.
Until recently, hepatitis C treatment required weekly injections and oral medications that many people couldn’t take because of other health problems or unacceptable side effects. In other words, you can try and treat your Hep C, but you couldn’t cure it. It was only something you could maintain, as long as your body could handle the “treatment”.
But times have changed.
For those who have suffered from Hep C for years, there is no cure. But if you just get it and it’s caught quickly enough, there are some new oral medications that you can take every day for a few months to eradicate the virus – not suppress, I mean actually kill it.
The catch is this only works with those who have not been on treatment for Hep C. If you have Hep C and have been fighting it for years, it’s not likely the new batch of medication can cure you. I’m not sure why, I’m not a doctor. I just know that the new treatments, especially the one the FDA approved last January only works with those who haven’t undergone previous treatment for Hep C.
“Today, direct-acting antiviral medications are approved for the treatment of hepatitis C,” Dr. Hanouneh says. “These drugs work specifically against the hepatitis C virus by suppressing viral replication so it eventually dies.”
The new treatments are about 90% effective. This is a huge success rate for the most common type of Hep C. The problem is, the new treatments are extremely expensive. Depending on the type of Hep C you have and how long you have to be treated, costs can reach $100k.
So to address the issue of the performer with Hep C, as far as I can tell she went to test prior to filming her first scene, popped positive for Hep C, did a confirmatory test, found out she did, in fact, have Hep C, went home for 3 or 4 months, underwent treatment and has tested again, this time she has tested negative for Hep C.
I have gotten 3 emails about it, the one I got today was what made me decide to write about it. I think we need to clear up the issue at hand. I don’t want people out there spreading misinformation or bullshit.
As far as I can tell, the original source of the story is a girl who was in the model house with the other girl who popped positive.
But that being said, as far as I can tell the girl has now tested twice, both times she tested negative.
