what to do?
Nov 25, 2001

2 months ago I had a risk encounter. I've been tested for hep b and hep c, but both have been negative. 1 1/2 after posible infection I had a mild yellow jauntice in my eyes, should I get tested using PCR or vaccinated for both?

thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

You may have the HBsAg,repeated and the e antigen and antibody,also you may have the PCR for Hep.C.About vaccine ,if you do not have Hep. B ,you should receive it .Unfortunately there is no C vaccine.

Peg or pegasys?
