Hi everyone, my name is Ed, 31 yrs old and just recently informed after donating blood that my sample tested for one of Hep B markers. However was seriously sick last winter and ultimately landed in the ER with diagnosis of adult virus. I have severe bloated stomach as I am typing, not feeling too well, and can spot some red spots on my eye balls. I have an appointment with an Hepatologist till September 2nd but the bloated stomach and dotted reddish eye balls scares me. Given that I don't yet know my situation in terms viral load, potentially a chronic carrier should I be concerned or wait till Sep 2nd to see an Hepatologist. Please I will appreciate feedback from anybody willing to help. Thanks and God bless...

Hi edhb,
Did they tell you to follow up with your dr? Most adult onset hep b infections resolve within 6 months.. Until you have further blood work, can't comment..

You may want to have your bloating and other symptoms checked at a urgent care or pcp. They may not be liver symptoms..
Check back with your results, Ed

Best to you, and welcome to our site

I don't know anything about the Hep B markers - but I can pray for ya.
Keep us posted. I like to hear the success stories as well as the stories that are not to "successful" - but we all have burdens in life and my happens to be Hep C and I am now a Breast Cancer Survivor.
