I am new to this forum and just wanted to ask a few questions. Has anyone with Hep C ever used the product called Colon Cleanse and is it safe?

I haven't taken it personally, but you should check with your doctor before taking anything like that.  It's not the colon that needs cleansing!  I've heard of people doing liver detox, but it's questionable as to whether it is safe or even does any good.  Are you seeing a hepatologist?  Have you undergone treatment for your hep C?  Let us know a little more about your situation.

I am originally from St. Louis and now reside in Texas. I have a great doctor in St. Louis and I will be moving back shortly. Because of that, I have do not have a doctor here. My first biopsy showed some scarring, my second was a little worse from my first. Besides the tiredness and muscle aches, I had not had many symtoms up intil now. I am not completely sure thay are all liver related, but I do have a bad feeling about them. I started having some severe myoclonic body jerks, but brains scans, and EEG's show nothing wrong with my brain. Though I hesitate to write this, I am having some serious problems with my stool. I am very constipated usally, but recently I noticed all of these strange things in my stool. It is almost like nothing has been digested.Any ideas about that?

New Bride, I would suggest you find a doctor to go to there about these problems...or even to the ER if you don't know which doctor to choose.  Have you tried Miralax?  It's a fiber powder that may help you and was prescribed to me by my liver surgeon.
