I have actually nothing left to hide, that I don't mind sharing or if I do, way too late! I have this story out here in a womens magazine, they make a lot over old news that has my mother in law fussing.

As far as my recovery goes, nothing magic to report, no special diet, no supplements. I lost weight, is the main thing.

Hello Hazel,


I did a bit of a zoom job on the magazine photo and many things I read remind me, and I expect many other members here, of the journey through life managing our unwanted freeloader.

You say it all,

many thanks

why do they show a dentist? Do they feel we can get Hep C at the dentist?

Hello Oregondaisy.

Previously back when sterilization practices weren't quite up to the standards that they are today some people who had root canal procedures etc had been known to contract some nasty things from dentist offices that weren't as hygienic as they could be.

There have been a few health scares in the last couple of years in various dentist offices in the USA and Canada related to Hep B as well if I remember correctly, I don't think there were any proven cases of transmission by these means recently but it was enough to get the authorities involved and recommend testing for the patients of particular surgeries.

Prompted by the potential transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in a private dental practice in 2013, this review brings dental healthcare providers (DHCPs) up-to-date with the natural history and epidemiology, new CDC screening guidelines,2,3 new treatment, surveillance, and healthcare-associated HCV transmission and prevention options. The review provides useful references and websites where additional detail is available for those interested in learning more.
