Response from Dr. McGovern
First of all, I want to emphasize that although you were contacted about hepatitis B, this doesn't mean you actually have any liver disease. That is VERY important for you to know.
Finally, there are great treatments for hepatitis B so even if you do have liver disease, you should do very well.
You should make an appointment to meet your doctor to learn more.
