In an interview with Larry King, Pam Anderson revealed that she will take some time off from her career to undergo treatment for Hepatitis C.
The disease, she claims, was transmitted to her through a tattoo needle she shared with her ex, Tommy Lee.
Pam’s plan for treatment is to take injections of the anti-viral drug interferon, along with a combination of other drugs to treat the disease, which affects the liver.
“There’s lots of side effects,” Pam told Larry King. “It’s going to be a year of basically having the flu. Your hair falls out. It’s a little kind of chemotherapy.”
The treatment is scheduled to start in December.
