I am scheduled to start the new pegasus/ribobiran treatment. Can anyone shed some light on what I can expect? Side effects, etc. Anything special to do for nutrition?

Since this is available through clinical trial only, discuss this with your trial nurse.

Trial nurses have told me that side effects are less severe than they have seen with other treatments and when they do occur, they occur later in the treatment course.

Check out the Survivors Guide to Treatment found at (favorite links) It gives you a fairly comprehensive look at what you might encounter during treatment.

i am 8 weeks into the combo treatment and i am doing ok. the side effects have been getting better as the weeks go on. sometimes i feel like i can't get enough breath and it makes my heart pound but other then the usual fatigue i am determined to do the program. i need to feel better. the side effects of the hep-c were destroying me.
