Interferon side effects and recovery are so individualized. I did much better on the high dose IV interferon but struggled with the 11 months of Sub Q. I finished my 12 months on June 30th, 2010. My most prominent symptoms were large leg muscle soreness, graying/thinning of the hair, constipation and mainly bone dead tired. Post interferon my hair has not come back to normal. Maybe it is my age at 53. All the other symptoms had dissapated by 2 weeks afterwards. There is a life post interferon and I don't miss the injections. I have a desk job and worked through it. I don't have to take naps when I come home anymore.
Hang in there, it gets better,
