Finally getting treatment!!

After waiting for what seems like an eternity, l'm finally getting treatment with the new meds apparently a 12 week process, so far lm about 5 weeks into treatment and aside from feeling incredibly lazy l don't feel any different. No-one in my life except the medical profession know l have hep c-- I have been married for 28 years have been sexually active with my husband!! & thankfully he or no-one else has hep C so lm soo lucky that infection hasn't occurred to anyone bcause of me... l think l have had it about 15 years lm guessing, as for the treatment l don't feel any different, initially l had a headache for a few days but that went away now, really not feeling any different, just wanted to share, thanx for reading hope all goes well with everyone else waiting/receiving treatment

  • Hi Donna, Congratulations. (on getting treated that is, not feeling yucky ! ). Afraid that,s fairly par for the course, but it does get better. The hospital prob told you this but make sure you keep hydrated with water, I put lemon in mine and it makes a huge difference. Those are powerful drugs they put us on. Best wishes. anne.
