ok, dear users of this forum, first of all i want to apologize because of my english and for a big amount of text, that you are going to see.
i am 28 years old male, living in moscow, Russia. here is my problem. i am scared, that i might have caught hepatitis virus and here is why:
three months ago I visited a paid medical central (not goverment clinic, but a paid licensed medical central). i get there to have a quick hiv test. so after nerse took my blood sample and eventually i got my result (which was negative) i got home and then I headed to wrestling jym.
i dont know why, but after that blood test i was scared that nerse might have used not sterile needle and i might have got hepatitis now (because she didnt even whiped my elbow with alchohol pad for sterilizing, and because i turned my head away, cuz i didnt wanna to see process). then i got home and a couple of hours later i headed to my wrestling jym (i am also scared, that my have caught virus trought fresh needle wound inside my jym).
but now i am regretting that i even decideed for that hiv test.�after that day, i started to realize that my poop is no longer brown color, its was yellow. I recognized that my pee is now brownish. I've read a lot on internet about those symptoms and almost everywhere it was said that those symptoms belong to hepatitis. so i got really scared, and month after i made a biochemical blood test, and here is my results:�
billirubin - 19.1
alt - 15
ast - 22
then 11 weeks latter i made ultrasound and everything was ok eith my organs.
then 3 months latter (exacly 89 (almost 13 weeks)days ) after that incident i got my blood checked for anti-hcv and hbs-ag and it was all negative.
but i still feel like i have all the symptoms:
yellow poop, dark yellow colour urine (but i have no jaudince, my skin colour is ok), fatigue (but my appetite is ok), feeling discomfort under right rib (not heavy or anithing, and no pain, just discomfort), 2 days ago i started to feel joint pain in my elbows and also I recognized lichen planus on my ankle (which is also considered as one of hepatitis symptoms).
so now, i have to thanks everyone, who has readed this far.
and here is ny questions:
- is there a risk cathing the virus in my situation (unsure in how sterile was needle, aldo it was a licensed place + went to wrestling class 2-3hours after needle injection with no tape on my arm)
- 3 monts is enought for anti-hcv total test to be sure in result ?
- should i be aware of those symptoms ? can heoatitis c create all those symptoms in so short oeriod of time ?
- how much i was at risk in my situation ?
i wish you all a good health and a happy life.
