It's been a tough road but I took my last shot tonight (24th). I was hit pretty good by the Incivek rash and was so weak and fatigued I couldn't do anything but lie on the couch for five months. My hemoglobin hit a low of 9.1 in Dec. and I dose reduced my Riba by one pill for 18 days. My Hgb. rose to 11 as of my last labs a month ago. As of mid-Feb. I started to feel a little better, maybe half human, and I started to cook new recipes, do work on the computer and play the guitar a little. I exercise 30 min. a day by riding a recumbent bike on the 2nd easiest level. I do not let my heart rate go above 120 BPM as I don't want to blow it up due to lack of oxygen from low Hgb.
I take my ribavirin pills until next Tuesday then I'm done and can start on the road to recovery.
