Has anyone else read the news regarding the reactivation of the Hepatitis B virus after treatment for the Hepatitis C infection?. God here I am sitting full of worries that it could involve myself. Approximately 45 years ago I was noticed to have the antibody for Hepatitis B!, obviously from a previous infection. Fast forward to the present and I have cleared the Hepatitis C virus from myself. Now I am full of worry that my old previous infection of Hepatitis B could be back!!. I've got an appointment with my hepatologist on the 8/11/16 so I will wait until then for a full Hepatitis screen can be done alongside my other bloodwork. It was bad enough waiting for the result of the treatment never mind this on top. Thanks for listening. Ian👂
PS: The drugs involved are Harvoni and several other antiviral drugs used in the process of treatment of Hepatitis C infection. I should see a virologist perhaps??
