There are about 16 genotypes of hep c. They have names like 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b etc....
Think of them like different variation on the same basic virus.
There are several treatments available for genotype 2 your doctor will decide which to use. Also your insurance may limit your choice of which specific treatment is in your insurance formulary.
The meds approved for treating hep c in the last few years are very effective at treating hep c with cure rates approaching 99%. Most people have few side effects the most commonly reported are some mild headaches. The headaches can be helped by keeping properly hydrated. The old 8 glasses for fluids, 8 ounce size daily or a bit more.
There are some who complain of more side effects but this is much less common so it is much more likely you really won’t notive anything much.
I had hep c for 37 years and was diagnosed with cirrhosis after I had been infected for 30 years. I treated with the old meds but they did not work.
Because of my history I treated with Harvoni and another drug ribavirin for 24 weeks. The ribavirin make most people anemic so this made me a little tired but basically I felt fine. Working full time and even took a short vacation to Italy walking all over while I was treating.
My suggestion is try not to worry more people talk themselves into having side effects they otherwise would not have.
Expect good things.
