hi belle05 and welcome,
your dr is correct!!!
however, hep c antibodies only mean, you have been exposed at a time in the past. they do not protect you from re infection. if a person continues to indulge in risky behavior, they may be infected again..
Hep b surface antibodies(hbsab), is immunity to infection, by anti hep b injections, or passing the virus by immunr response. Hep b can be reactivated, in people with inactive or resolved infections. By Cancer treatments, and some new monoclonal antibodie therapies.
hope that helps
best to you
Thank you so much for taking time and answering my question!
Can I ask you, do you know how common is hep b reactivation in praxis and should we fear it? When virus reactivate, does it become chronic or it's like another acute infection?
