    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!

    WITH YOUR V/L SO LOW YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF KICKING YOUR HCV OUT KIDDO......SECOND OPINION NEVER HURTS....MY V/L WAS LOW AND I CLEARED 12 YEARS AGO AND MY STAGE 4 LIVER IS HAPPY I DID TX FOR SURE....

    MAY I ASK YOUR AGE? I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SOJGRENS SYNDROME...DID YOUR GASTRO SAY THAT WOULD BE A PROBLEM ON TX?

    I DO KNOW HCV AND TX WILL WAKE UP OTHER PROBLEMS IN OUR BODIES....THAT IS WHY MD'S KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON US WHEN ON TX...
