If you read the back posts from MANY treatment alums, you will see that some do and some do not suffer from side effects from the various treatment regimens.
When my partner was on Interferon and Ribavirin, he was a WRECK. He had to take both procrit and nupegin injections to keep his white and red bloods counts somewhere north of DEAD. He had riba rage, he was basically NUTS for months. He was on a 6 months regimen and took ages to feel better. And the treatment didn't work. He was cured in 2014 when he finally got a NON Riba alternative for Genotype 1a, Sovaldi and Olysio. I don't see many here on that one. BUT her cleared the virus in a few weeks and is still virus free! Woo Hoo.
He had no treatment side effects the second time, if anything, he felt better than in ages because the virus was not constantly brining him down. He was post transplant, so he is not a perfect 10 these days, but he is alive and feeling better over all than before the virus was killing off his new liver completely.
I observe (and I am not a doc) that folks who had some problems before treatment with digestion problems or anxiety, etc might see those symptoms increase on treatment. Most have said they clear their treatment side effects shortly after going of the meds...and if you have cleared there is more than jubillation!
So long as you are drinking lots of water and taking food with Riba, you should be okay..some headaches, some tummy aches, and maybe increased anxiety if that is an issue for you at stressful times anyway.
I always think about Hep C treatment like a cancer treatment....without the hair loss and puking.
Best to you...I think the cure it out there for you.
