Well, after the first month of TX, with Interfuron and Ribivirin, it was not easy but I managed to push through. I still haven't missed a day of work here in the office. I started Boceprevir at week 5, which was 11 days ago. I sure am weak and tired and dizzy and nauseous. It comes and goes, but I am struggling. Last night I had chills and body aches, but no fever. I guess it's just the flu like symptoms. it seems like these symptoms hit me a different day each week. My HGB was at 10.7 before I started Boceprevir, so if it drops more, i may start on Procrit, hopefuly, that will help with this feeling of weakness. Aside from all the side effects, I know this is going to be worth it. My viral load was already <43 at week 4, it is probabaly UND by now! :) I plan to keep up on mild exercise like walking, and pilates. It helps a lot. Other than that, thank you all for yor support, and for sharing your stories with me on this forum.
