The doctor should be monitoring your creatinine levels at each CBC. This is a blood test to determine kidney function.

forgot to say that you need to drink at least 2 liters of water each day when you are treating, as the meds dry you out...

and not everything is a result of the hep treatments - if you do develop a pain that is similar to something you are already familiar with (or not) you need to contact your doctor to make sure nothing is wrong.

We ALL get used to blaming everything on treatment and hep but sometimes.......it's just regular old problems that develop.
