Just wondering if anyone has ever experienced a side effect that feels like you're getting a chest cold. I'm not having trouble breathing but have that feeling in my chest when you think you're coming down with a cold. I know there are colds going around right now and I have a school aged child, so it's possible I could be getting a chest cold. Also, does anyone know that if you should get "other illnesses" during treatment that aren't necessarily side effects of tx and you're WBC is low (2.1) this week, will your WBC count go up to fight whatever infection you may have gotten? On 6th week of tx right now. Dosages of Peg & Ribavarin cut in half due to WBC and HGB going down.
Thanks for all of your wisdom. Hope everyone is doing fine this weekend!
