Hi Everyone, I'm new to the group and this HepC. I will be starting treatment in a CT at Shands Gainesville on 9/2/09 - next week. Can any one tell me how the treatment made them feel, the nurse only tells me that every one is different but I have heard its pretty bad. Also I don't understand that my (liver) dr - after getting all the test back - called to say my liver is at stage 3 and he would recommend treatment for 9 months, I asked him about the CT and got enrolled - I was told by the nurse with the CT that if I wasn't clear in 12 weeks that the treatment would stop because it wasn't working -- well, 12 weeks is a lot short time then 9 months -- so whats up with that, can any one tell me. Like I said I very new to all of this and things are moving fast., Thanks Susa
