    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    How do I send my last post to Dr. Main?
    findingpeacewithpain posted:
    I wrote this long letter to him (I thought) can anyone tell me how to send it directly or tell him I need him to please read the last post about a tethered cord syndrome with a chiari malformation. I thought I sent it to him but it looks like it went to everyone. ARGHHHH I wish I knew how to do this.....
    annette030 responded:
    That is how you do it here as far as I know. You post it for everyone to see, and the doctor reads the posts too and responds when he can.

    There are no private communications with the doctor that I am aware of. If there are Caprice will let you know. She stays on top of things here.

    Take care, Annette

    Annette has it right (thanks Annette!).

    Your post was there but will be removed. Please check your email for an explanation. :-) I hope you'll repost.

    Hi Caprice. I am so sorry that my post had to be removed. I don't know why at all. My email did not have an entry in it.
    Did I do something wrong. I thought we weren't supposed to enter DR.'s names.......I din't remember doing that.
    Again, I am sorry if I did anything wrong. I just started to engage with people suffering like me and I can't believe how much it has helped. I would be really sad if I got kicked off! I will read again the terms of the discussion board and hope that I can learn what happened.
    Take CARE, I apologize for messing up.

    Hi Lisa,

    You may want to check your junk folder; an email was sent to the address you have registered with us at WebMD.

    But, either way, yes, you mentioned the doctor's name.

    And no worries, really, just about everyone gets a post removed now and then for one reason or another.

    I'm glad you found us and hope you'll keep posting. :-)
