I am one of the 2000 who got a letter from UPMC to get tested to see if that S.O.B. gave me hepatitis C. I didnt get my test yet but wondered if anyone else has? Did you get results yet? Thanks.

Did they say how long it may take to get results? I have a difficult time getting out to keep appointments at times but I guess I'll have to schedule one and try to get my test done. I'll pray that your results are negative. Thanks for responding Clara.

Thank you very much Big Goal. I appreciate that. Because of the holiday weekend, I reckon I'll have to wait a little longer for results but I think things will turn out good. Thanks again and have yourself a great and safe holiday.

Finally, Finally, Finally after a month, I got my test results back. Negative! It's a good thing I'm not a hypochondriac or I would have driven myself nuts by now! Thanks everyone for your responses. Take Care.
