My doc and I agreed to stop the telaprevir a week early, after 11 weeks.  Feeling a bit better.  One concern is my renal function.  eGFR is 53 and creatinine is 1.46.  He ordered an ultrasound of my kidneys.  I know some renal impairment is not unheard of... does anyone know if this is reversible once I stop taking the ribavirin?

Anyhow, rash is bad ... still tired.  Appetite has improved and I'm getting my 12 week PCR this Wednesday.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  Hope all is well with all my friends!
