About your post...my ANC dropped to .77 after just one week but then climbed back up again to .99 before dropping to .55 by 8 weeks. I crashed throufh the entire TX and had to use neulasta (pegylated version of neulasta) in combination with interferon dose reduction. Get started with the neupogen and see if you are responsive to it before deciding that you may not be able to make it through TX. I had no problems with either the neulasta or dose reduction. I'd like to think that your rough reaction to interferon might mean that you are very responsive to it and will mean an early undetectable PCR. Hope so. I don't think just a month of interferon will change your liver picture much. Hope you get to stay on TX as long as you need to.
