   After being in contact from someone elses blood I was tested 16 weeks later for HepC and HIV.  The doctor didn't seem to concerned to test me again.  I did have slightly elivated liver enzimes, rash, etc. and was quite sick for a while all had since cleared up and gone away.  Doc figured it was just a transient virus.  Does anyone know how determinate this test is after 16 weeks?  It was an atibody test.

Hello jay,
I would ask that more tests be done for the hepc,,I dont know about HIV,but with the hepc test,,I think it can take a while for the body to build up antibodies that the test will pick up,,,everyones body is different. If your not comfortable with the decision your dr made ,consider a second opinion,or a third if necessary. Good luck on your results!
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
