Hello everybody!

I been reading this forum for the past two days, and now I am a member. I found out last week that I am infected with CHRONIC HEPATITIS B. I had lots of blood work done for years, but two weeks ago, my gp called me and told me something was abnormal in with my liver level, and to come in for more blood work. Gave a tube, and he called back and told me I had chronic Hepatitis B. HBsAG positive and Hep B core igm negative. hbv 1178 iu/ml and 3.094 log10... Dont know what that means?!?!?!

I have an appointment with a GI/Hepotolgist on 1/5/16. Which my wife made previously before the diagnoses, because of my bloated stomach. Just got an abdominal sonogram done on 12/31/15, and will be taking that report to my GI doctor. Probably going to make another appoint with a hepatologist after the appointment.

My world has turned totally upside down. Researched google, and DR. GOOGLE, HAS BEEN GIVING ME ALL THE NEGATIVITY I NEED THIS WEEK. I feel like I just got the death sentence for liver cancer, in 10-20 years. I hope to live 30 35 years at most. I am wishing on it, but google does not help.

I am 38 years old, three BESTEST kids, and a beautiful wife. Never cheated or did drugs. My wife just got her blood drawn last week for the test, and while she was pregnant with our kids, no mentioning of Hep B from the hospital, since they test all pregnant mothers. I wish and hope and pray to god, that NON of my kids (3 boys, 10-4-18months), and my lovely wife, have the freaking HB virus.

I feel so hopeless, that I will die of liver cancer or liver disease before my children even reach college, let alone watch them get married and live their lives. I will probably be a life member, since I will have this thing for the rest of my life, however long that will be.

If anybody can advice me on how to deal with this maddness or recommend what I should be doing next, I would be grateful. Until next post, Thanks for letting me vent out some sadness and frustrations, means a lot to me. Thank you

Welcome to the hep forum, Fing.

We are those with liver disease of all sorts, and those who love them. My husband had Hep C, treated it twice, failed the first treatment, eradicated the virus the 2nd treatment a few years ago. He now is cured of Hep C. Unfortunately, he had stage 4 cirrhosis when he was diagnosed 10 years ago. For over 2 years themister been on the liver transplant list.

We have had several members share their experiences with Hep B that you might find interesting. I have no experience or knowledge of Hep B myself, but Luckyman316 has left us a good thread I will link for you. He has not been seen here since August, but if you go to his member profile, he has provided his email and a personal homepage for others to contact him.

hi,
glad to hear you will be seeing a hepatologist. you will need more blood work to evaluate your status, and whether you need treatment. I also had hep b, and passed it spontaneously.

luckyman lives and breathes hep b. if im allowed to give you his website hangout, it could be supportive.
