I just had shoulder surgery 3 weeks ago to rapair a torn rotator cuff and labrum, my girlfriend just told me she had hepatitis and caught it 2 years ago. I have just been getting sick around a day or so ago with diariea, fatigue, stomach pains, loss of hunger and it looks like my glands are swollen in my throat, could it be from the surgery, hepatitis? thanks michael

Response from Dr. McGovern

The blood supply is extremely safe due to extensive testing. However it appears that you should be evaluated by your physician for these symptoms. I am not sure of what your diagnosis is, but hepatitis would not be high on my list.
