    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 am on week 43 of 48. The Dr said everything is going great. There have been a few difficult days and some difficult side effects but it has not been unbearable. I read volumes of material after my diagnosis and felt the treatment and the disease were equally bad. Try hard to keep a Positive Mental Attitude and say your prayers every day. I just wanted you to know that it can be done with a minimum of disruption in your life. There still will be a lab check 6 months after this is over and I hope I am through, but if it isn't , I will do it again.

    Amen to that! I also have 5 wks left. Side fx stink but they are temporary. Having a GREAT wife to help me walk through this hourney has been invaluable also.

    Great news! I like hearing from those who can see that light at the end of the tunnel.

    I'm presently a long way from there, with my last dose falling sometime in Sep. But the 3 drug combo is bearable and I take pleasure in the little things in life.

    Keep that Positive attitude about you. It's something that help sthe rest of think, "I can do it too."
