HeyO Cinnamon,

(Please feel free to move this post if there is a better location for managing side effects, thanks)

While looking for Part 2 I ran across the link below which deals with "Managing Side Effects" that I thought might be helpful to "New Members" such as myself.

I did a search on our site (I must be starting to feel at home here), did find some links to articles re: Side Effects but not this link.

The link below branches to two types of publications, Easy or more detailed, I liked the "Easy C Facts link.

Managing Side Effects

the `Treatment Related Guides`are another fine link, thanks!

 

Lnx

p.s. Good call on editing the title ... and yes, I agree, http://hcvadvocate.org is proving to be an extremely useful website ... just what us newbies need to educate ourselves about HCV ... pre/ during/ and no doubt post Tx as well.

Hi again Dave (Linux), I don`t know what happened to Part 2, but it looks like this is the only `Preparing for Treatment` guide from the HCV Advocate website now.  Maybe they were merged into this newer version.

I had a look and these were the fact sheets listed under `Treatment Related Guides`...

http://hcvadvocate.org/treatment/guides-treatment/

Plenty of useful information there, this is one of best and most reliable Hep C websites I know of. 

I`ve edited the heading of this thread, to save confusion!

Thanks go to you Jill, the "Preparing for Treatment" guide that is what's helpful.

Just curious, since you listed this as - "Part 1" there must be more, I'll have to look to see if there is a part 2 etc.

 

Lnx

Thanks for that!

Yes, the Hep C Advocate website (now HCV Advocate)  has recently had a make-over.  Actually this is a more up to date version than the one I originally posted and  I hope some of our new members will find it helpful. 

Keeping the links up to date is an ongoing process so I`m glad you found it, very helpful of you.  smile

Hi Jill,

The link that you provided ends up going to http://hepatitiscadvocate.blogspot.com/  (They obviously moved the article since you posted this).

I couldn't find the article there that your post refers to so I Goog'd "Alan Franciscus Preparing for Treatment" and found the following. (I think it's the publication that you were refering to. (See Below)


http://hcvadvocate.org/hepatitis/factsheets_pdf/Preparing_for_Treatment.pdf
