|scared to get tested
Nov 30, 2009
im really scared to get tested, recently i was travelling in Africa when i found out i had appendicitis i had no choice but to have the operation but it was really basic and not sterile at all. i ended up being given blood (even though i was reasured this wouldnt happen) and i know the blood was not screened for infections
how high is the risk of being infected and is there anything else i should be tested for?
any advice would be greatly appreciated thank you
