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
