“After coming home from a biz trip that had taken me out of the country for over a month, I wasn't feeling well. I went to my family physician had a quick physical and took some blood. The doc put me on antibiotics just to play it safe. A couple days later he called and said I had a venereal disease. Imagine my shock as I had been married and monogamous for 19 years. I had Hep C. Ah, the misinformation we get.”
freedomisearned’s “Denial”

“I am wondering about body heat.  I'm way past menopause but have continued to have hot flashes, which during the last few weeks of treatment increased in temp and frequency significantly.  I am still experiencing this. I do have cirrhosis, and my blood tests are normal.  I'm wondering if this has been experienced by others.”
