Hey,
There is no real way of knowing what is gonna happen. Everyone is different with there symptoms but they are close in some way. When I first started I was scared as hell. My first pen shot I missed. And cried about it but I moved on and went threw it for 6 months. It was not easy but I made it 10/11/13 SVR. I know you can do this and in the end you will be glad you did it.
Best of luck to you!

Hi there and welcome to the forum.
It would help if we knew what treatment you were going to be on, and for how long.
Your genotype, results of fibroscans, biopsies etc would also assist as then those who are on or have been on the same treatments can advise you.
Everyone here has had or has HCV, or is caring for someone who has this virus.
There are a mix of people who have cleared the virus, are on treatment, or about to start. So there is a lot of support.
Post those results, and people will get back.
Incidently, there's no point in being scared. Most of us still here on the forum got through treatment, whether successful or not. For some it was harder than others.
Keep in touch and good luck.
