    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,

    HCV viral load at 4 wks of tx (actually 2 full & 2 partial doses, due to platelet prob) is 'Not Detected'. Doc says this puts me in a 90% chance of being clear after 48 wks. God is good!!!

    Doing pretty well overall. First 3 wks pretty uneventful, as a matter of fact, couldn't even tell I took the 3rd shot. Then came this week. Not too bad but achy, chills, fatigue, all that stuff. Made it through work ok. Still not as bad as the 3 shots/week back in '96. This wknd, more of the same. Did mow my yard & Mom's yard. Shoulda paid more attn to doc telling me about sun sensitivity. I thought I was ok - oops - nothing like sunburned arms & neck after only about MAYBE 2 hrs. Have had very good conversations with my wife and she has agreed that I will be honest with her about how I feel, and she will trust me to not overdo it...too much.
