Peg-Intron questions

I had a liver transplant 5.5 years ago and all of a sudden I am in Active Hep C.  I will start this Peg-Intron/Rebetol therapy next month and am scared.  But I also I have incurred Kidney damage from my anti rejection medicines, so now my kidneys are functioning at 54%.  I hear that the Peg-Intron is dangerous to the Kidneys, has anyone had any problems or any comments.
Any hints on starting this treatment?  I must admid I am very nervous, more so than before my transplant.
God bless
