The Forum - Chapter 21

After weeks of appointments filled with bad news, we were starting to get leery of Tuesday afternoons. It was hard to be jovial as we sat in the waiting room now. That previous week I had been doing hours of research on the computer and found a web sight and forum dedicated to people with Hepatitis C.

This was a place where you could ask qualified medical personnel questions. It was also a great avenue to talk to other patients and their families about their treatments, successes, failures and most of all side effects! It confirmed many things Don suffered with were indeed caused by the medications he was taking. Others offered tried and good advice and suggestions to problems we were having and more than anything - it gave us hope! On this sight I learned about a new drug called Newmega.
