    I started itching 1 and 1/2 years ago on my upper arms, specifically left.. no rash at first, then my legs and scalp. Went to several doctors. I am now losing my hair due to scalp rash. Blood bank informed me i was hep c reactive, just had a hep c test done yesterday and waiting for results

    Thank s everyone. I am now laying in a hospital bed with a new liver. The testing done showed cancer but all is clear now. I had my surgery done Thursday and numbers are good and continue to improve. I hope sharing this can give someone hope. Do not give up or lose hope.

    Thank you for your letter as it explains it perfectly. I read it about 20 times!! Lol
