In 1974 I was diagnosed with with hepatitis. The doctor wasn`t clear about what type, but he told me that it was an Australian virus. I recovered very quickly & have had normal liver function tests ever since. There is one other thing that`s worrying me, I had a blood transfusion in 1983 after an operation & have been reading that transfusion given at this time may have been contaminated with hep c. I have yearly blood tests to put my mind at rest & so far they have been clear. Would I still be at risk after all this time?
