Hepatitis C & CLL (Leukemia)

Hi all,
My mother has had CLL for the past year. It is a more dormant form of Leukemia and poses no threat as such and does not require any treatment. During her recent visit to the United States, the docs there suspected Hepatitis C which was confirmed in New Delhi.
The doctor here has recommended to start the treatment at the earliest while her CLL is at a lower stage. He will be using Ribavirin/Pegasus.
My mom is 61 years old and also has high Blood pressure and Diabetes. Can you please tell me how rough is this treatment, in terms of side effects etc?

Please help
