Do you have a choice of a lot of occupations? I would avoid something physically or mentally demanding. I would say no to brain surgery as I wouldn't want you operating on me during tx, and I would say no to pro football for sure though, baseball may be doable!
Many people work during tx, it really depends on your response to the drugs.
I would not work in any health care positions, especially if you have a viral load. Reason being you can pass it to others through blood to blood contact. In Dental you get stuck a lot I know thats where I got it. I quit as soon as I was diagnosed in fear of passing it to others.
