Response from Dr. McGovern

If you now have symptoms of hepatitis (nausea, vomiting, fatigue, jaundice, poor appetite) then I would get testing for hepatitis C again. I would probably order HCV RNA, HCV antibody and liver function tests. If your physician thinks it is too early to retest antibody, I would do the other two tests.

HELP! Twinrix Hep A/B Vaccine NOT working! ***SECOND TIME ASKING***
