    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,

    I was informed a few years ago,I have antibodies,to-for..? Hepatitis C. That is all the info I have. I don't know what it means,as far as how it affects my life,if at all. I also wonder how it may have happened. I am 57 years old,and am wondering if I need to address this in any way.

    I HAVE BEEN MARRIED 47 YEARS TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AND MY HUSBAND DOES NOT HAVE HCV.......OUR ADULT DAUGHTERS DO NOT HAVE IT EITHER AND WE SHARED RAZOR TILL I FOUND OUT ABOUT MY HCV IN 1993.......

    IF WORRIED GET TESTED AND ASK HER MD...
    MY THOUGHT IS ENJOY LIFE HCV DOES NOT MEAN DEAD. MOST HEPPERS DO NOT DIE FROM HCV BUT DIE WITH IT..
