Abstract

The views of 32 women with iatrogenic Hepatitis C on its impact on their sense of wellbeing were elicited through focus groups. The views obtained were analysed using 'interpretative phenomenological analysis'. Accounts of profound fatigue, reactive depression, and deterioration in cognitive functioning predominated. Work outside and inside the home was severely curtailedor stopped. Marital relationships were affected, sometimes adversely, as were relationships with children and other family members. Participants experienced a general lack of understanding of their level of disability, yet also felt the need to shield others from worry. Overall results suggested that participants' compromised health was having a major impact on their sense of identity.
