I can now report that the side effects have subsided to a large degree.

Starting to feel much better and confident.

Had liver function tests and I am WELL UNDER the normal limits. An amazing result after two short weeks.

ALT down from 62 to 11

Very happy chappy here.

Great that you're feeling so good Ann. I'm sure your four week bloods will make you feel even better!

And great first bloods of your treatment John.

Yes Johnboy I am prepared for side effects, all worth it to be Hep C freeeeeeeeee. And I might be one of the lucky ones without sides.

I've been living with my dragon for over 30 years and very ready to say goodbye to the shame, stigma, and secrecy that came with it.

Received an email yesterday confirming my order has arrived in Australia, awaiting testing and encapsulating, so it won't be long now. Whoopee.

I have never had shame, secrecy or stigma over this. I point blank refuse to feel such emotion. I am very open about it and that shocks many I talk to.

Slay away!

Good for you Johnboy. I found so much ignorance out there, particularly concerning transmission (the leper effect) that I shut up about it. I couldn't be honest in my work environment without risking losing jobs or customers. It's almost as stigmatised as HIV was.

I'm reasonably open about it
But i did tell the doctor that i got it from a blood transfusion (I had 2 serious injuries that required transfusions before you could test)
However during my misspent youth i also shared needles with a guy I knew had hepatitis
But it was just an off the cuff comment someone said about him being yellow
I thought it was something you got from eating dodgy food in poor countries and thought no more about it- until i tested positive
whoops
that's the problem with a war on drugs - it's a war on education as well

i told the doctor this because i reckon the info goes on a database
And i reckon the more needle users that have it, the more reason no-one needs to care
i reckon there is definitely a stigma of it being a 'junkies' disease
We live in a punitive society and i reckon regular punters see Hep c as your punishment for being a fool
That's my theory anyway

Sad but true.

The only negative attitude I ever had was from a doctor. He couldn't find my deadset easy to find veins and then asked if I had ever used needles. I said yes, then he viciously jabbed me in the upper arm to take blood. It was the most disgusting behaviour.

Yep well no blood transfusions here, mis-spent youth banging up and sharing up Afghanistan and Burmas finest. We had no idea, hep c wasn't even invented lol and nor was needle exchange. Huge regrets now as a grandfather, father and responsible world citizen. Em

I believe there are many in the medical profession who believe they need to be 'cruel to be kind' thinking that we may 'learn our lesson' if they are cruel to us. It is shocking. Some maybe think we will not 'endanger' ourselves again if they make our experience as difficult as possible. Some think it's our own fault and we are wasting medical resources. Seems to me, many of us are over 50, this has been my experience since diagnosis, they would prefer to have us labelled junkies out of a 'life-style choice' I think. It keeps public opinion on the side of no funds for treatment. They also seem to overstate the cost of treatments in the press. Well, English Health Authority do anyway. It's handy for them to blame NICE.
Johnboy - The blood test thing is interesting ....sorry you had to experience that.
I believe HepC patients all over, are discriminated against.
My personal experience of the medical profession in England regarding this illness has been, in a word, bad.
