Update posted July 7, 2014
July 2 EOT VL undetected as expected My tx Np was going to wait foir 12 weeks post for VL but i talked him into doing it in 6 weeks post EOT when my CBC including hgb are going to be checked.
Finish tx on June 25. HGB and related still a little below normal but should return as the RBV gets eliminated from my body. My biggest side effect was greater fatigue especially during the last 4 week of treatment. this should improve over time. expect that the VL EOT will show undetected next week. 12wks SVR expected end of Sept.
May 28 2014 wk 8 labs lucky HGB stabilized and was 12.2 so no RBV dose reduction. Platelets down to 111 Low.
I have been very busy and traveled 400 miles to camp out at a music festival for the Memorial Day weekend. My only real side effect is a little more fatigue as expected. A short nap or two during the day helps a lot.
May 14 2014 wk 6 labs
platelets 123 Low HGB 12.0 Low (drop of 2.3 from wk 4 to wk 6 as much as the first 4 wks and was hoping they wouldn't much lower and have to reduce RBV
