    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.

    I posted before, saying my boyfriend was diagnoses with chronic Hep C. I just got a call saying that my blood tested positive for the Hepatitis C virus. Lovely. I have an appointment with my primary doctor next Tuesday. I guess she'll be doing more tests, right? I was reading online that they put people on meds for like 6 months that try to get rid of the virus. But, I read that those meds take a toll on your body. Anyone with experience with those meds? My boyfriend is seeing a liver specialist later this month. Looks like we are both going to be suffering.

    I FOUND IT EASIER TO NEVER EVER SAY "" WHY ME"". LEARN ALL YOU CAN ABOUT HCV. I GAVE YOU A LINK 3 WEEKS AGO TO STUDY. GO TO THE CDC AND STUDY THERE TOO.

    NO BOOZE FROM NOW ON AT ALL.

    I DID 48 WEEKS OF TX(TREATMENT) 14 YEARS AGO HAD A 30% CHANCE OF CLEARING AND I DID. MY STAGE 4 LIVER IS HAPPY I DID TX AND CLEARED. I BELIEVE YOU ODDS ARE MUCH MUCH BETTER NOW FOR SURE.

    FIND AN MD YOU LIKE AND TRUST. LISTEN AND LEARN ALL YOU CAN.
