    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Hi everyone,

    I know I have not been posting regularly but I have been lurking and grateful for all of those with much more knowledge than I. I am grateful to know that you are there to support others and we are not alone.

    I will be off line for a couple of weeks as I am having hand surgery tomorrow. I have a hemangioma in my left hand which is causing numbness and pain. Time to take care of it.

    I am here in spirit if not in word. My best to all.
