This book, now with companion website at www.hcvshare.org, is an essential guide for those
individuals who have been diagnosed with the Hepatitis C virus. The book guides you along,
starting out even before treatment begins to help you best prepare for the entire treatment
process. It discusses pretreatment indicators to a positive outcome and those that you can manage
to improve your odds of a successful HCV treatment. After preparing you for the first doses of
medication and explaining your first blood test results, the guide continues by showing you how
your individual response to treatment is affecting your odds for success, so that you can keep a
pulse on how the treatment is working for you. All through the remaining weeks of treatment, among
other very valuable information, this guide describes the side effects from treatment you are likely
to encounter and proven methods to effectively manage those side effects through the entire
"Conquering Hepatitis C and Surviving Treatment should be required reading for people
embarking on therapy, as well as for health care providers. It will give patients the tools
they need to successfully complete treatment, and the stories from the people who have already
gone down that path are motivating."
~Paul Schleinitz, MD, April 20, 2010, Medford, Oregon
Read Stories of Those Who Have Been There
Real life “testimonials” are included in the guide, one at the beginning of
each major section. These stories are the experiences as told by individuals who have either gone
through and completed treatment for HCV or are still continuing treatment as of their telling.
They describe how they found out they were infected with the Hepatitis C virus, their powerful
emotional responses to the news, what they did next, when they began treatment, and what their
experiences were while undergoing treatment. They describe the side effects they encountered and
what they did to combat those. They finish off by telling us what their result to treatment was and
what they are doing now. This book is not about “living” with the Hepatitis C virus, but more
focused on conquering the virus and surviving the treatment process that makes that possible.
If you or a loved one is affected by the Hepatitis C virus and is either considering treatment or
already undergoing treatment, this book is a must have!
