In brief: Usually not

In general, once you have finished your treatment with pegasys, (peginterferon alfa 2a) side effects/symptoms that you were having during treatment slowly disappear, but can take up to 6 months and in some instances 1 year although rare.
It can result in autoimmune disorders, although this is also rare. I would discuss your concerns with your treating physician for other rare long term side effects.
