That is great you're starting treatment, and at no cost! Amazing!
I too was concerned about
starting treatment, but I am stage 2-3 my driving force was I did not want my liver to get worse, so I took the plunge.
I am on 4th week of the Sovaldi 400mg a day 1 pill, and Pegetron once a week injection 120mg. and Ribavirin 600mg -3 pills in morning and 400mg 2 pills in evening.
The worst part for me is the fatigue, after I take my clear click dose once a week, flu like symptoms and achey bones. I am experiencing Insomnia, my Dr. prescribed sleeping pills, I used a couple of times, but do not want to be dependent on them.Loss of appetite which is good for me since I weighed in at 203
a little bit of nausea. Effects are different for everyone. I have taken STD for 12 wk treatment because of my job type, I have to travel across Canada and facilitate Seminars so way too demanding for me. My company told me to take time to get well.
Overall it is not as bad as I thought it would be, and it is for me only 12 wks for a cure is amazing, the gratitude keeps me positive. Feeling much better in the 4th week, so it does get better.
Good luck with your treatment! Hang in there, you can do it!
