New to the HCV

I'm a 60 year old male and just found out that I have HCV; really freaked me out as I'm sure I've had the virus for many years. I go for my biopsy in a few weeks and was wondering if I start treatment do I need to go on a leave of absence from work? The side affects sound horrific; I'm a restaurant manager and not sure what the treatment will do.
