PLEASE HELP! Feel betrayed
Apr 16, 2010

I came across these results of my husband. We were recently married 4 months ago. I'm VERY concerned because he never shared this with me!! Am I at risk of being exposed to HEP B? His results were as follows: HBSAG: negative, HBSAB: positive, HEPBTC: reactive, and HEP C: negative. Also, not sure if you need this info: serum P.SP.AG: 1.0 H* ng/ml and Serum eGFR 63.9 ml/min. Thank you so much for your help on this. I AM VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS FINDING!!

Response from Dr. McGovern

You should speak to your husband directly about this; you are not at risk for hepatitis B because this infection was acquired and cleared.
