I was formally diagnosed with chronic hepatitis b two and half years ago. I'm 62 years old. To cut a long story short, looks like I've had it since 1975.
Actually, I attend one of the London hospitals you suggest. So far they monitor my viral load and I've had two scans. Recently I asked whether I should be on antiviral medication, was told,no. I asked about a fibroscan and again, no. But he did book another scan. I was assured my liver is ok. But is it? I've had hep b for over 40 years.
I'm glad I've found a community for hep b.
