Can I still reach my Dream? Is there a life after Hepatitis B?

Im a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing in FEU and I now, a REGISTERED NURSE as I passed the Nov 2008 board examination. I graduated as *** LAUDE in my school hoping that this recognition could bring me to success. Until now, i can't believe that all my dreams will just fade because of my condition. I was diagnosed with hepatitis B when we had our screening when I was in 2nd year college..I wAS so blessed that i was able to finish college even with this kind of condition. But now, that i'm a registered nurse, new worries and fears hunted me..." Do I still have a chance to work as a nurse in the other country?" " iS it possible for me to work here in the Philippines as a nurse knowing that Filipinos are not that open and very strict with regards to this kind of topics?" Now I don't know what to do...Im just praying for someone that God will send to me, which will serve as his instrument in giving me hope and encouragement with regards to my condition. I'm a healthy carrier since I got this disease from my mom...Hope for your reply

there is no need to listing your personal info.

as for your condition, it is the same worry many people come here to express. it isnt that easy in some countries.

i cant really tell if you are able to work in the phillippines or any other country.
if you have a country in mind that you would like to move to then i would suggest you check their national health department and see if you will be elgible for work in that country or not.

good luck and hang in there til like you said God has a different say.

I realize I am replying to a fairly old post, but I saw it only now. I hope my thoughts on the matter help.

If I were a patient with wounds that needed dressing, and I did not have HepB, given the choice, I really would not choose to be cared for by a nurse who has HepB.

Next: what kind of patients would not care whether you have HepB or not? Patients who have HepB themselves? I wonder if there is a HepB hospital somewhere in the world. What else? Advanced stage cancer patients or other terminally ill patients? As far as I know HepB has quite a long incubation period. Surely, terminally ill patients would not be affected much by this. Do you think you could specialize in caring for them? What else? A geriatric hospital? Any more ideas?

I understand that the laws in your country of interest may not let you care even for terminally ill patients. I hope you can reason with someone, somewhere in the world, and they will let you work at whatever you do best.

I am hep b carrier I am  an RN. I went through a same predicament like yours.I passed all the exam including CGFNS. I cried devastated when I found out that I am a carrier and was discriminated by a  hospital in Manila. But I didnt give up. till I found this small hospital in cubao.They did not require any medical exam, Which I believed God answered my Prayer. Worked there for 3 years. Now Im working here in USA enjoying my dream. Always remember white lie is not a sin...
keep on Praying, God Will lead the way...

Hi! Katulad mo ako rin ay may HepaB last 2005 ko nalaman 22 years old ako nun. Dapat yung mga school dito sa Pinas may medical para malaman kung may sakit ka ba katulad ng HepaB para alam mo kung ano bang dapat na course para sa'yo. Sa tingin ko mahihirapan ka talagang makahanap ng work kasi ang HRM related sa pagkain eh very strict pa naman sila maghire ng mga taong may HepaB kahit hindi naman natratransfer sa food ito. Why not magtayo ka na lang ng sarili mong business  kasi kahit nga ako hirap makahanap ng work dahil sa sakit na ito dito sa Pinas.

Hi! im type_o im 31 yrs old katulad nyo nag positive din ako sa hepa b. nalaman ko ito since 2004 pa nung first time ako mag apply ng work locally. i was so disappointed and depressd that time na malaman ko na may hepa ako at hepa b pa. hindi ko alam kong saan ko ito nakuha. at natanong ko din si Lord na bakit nagkaroon ako ng ganitong  sakit. mahirap tanggapin sa  loob  kasi tama kayo lahat sa buhay mo apektado. nakapag abroad na ako once nag punta ako ng japan as tourist tapos nag work ako dun ng mga 2 years din. hindi ko na nabigyan ng atensyon ang sakit ko parang binalewala ko lang  kasi akala ko kusang mawawala na lang sa katagalan but i was wrong until now nandito pa rin sa dugo ko yung virus. i hav gf and shes supporting me all the way naman at tanggap nya ang kalagayan ko. 7 yrs na kami pero never pa kami nagkaroon ng sex contact. natatakot ako mahawahan sya. mabuti na rin nga yung magkalayo kami. Sabi ng doctor sakin mababa daw yung level ng virus sa dugo ko kaya hindi nya ako nabibigyan ng gamot na para talaga sa hepa b. take lang daw ako ng mga food supplement especially yung pang liver. i don't drink  liquor or smoke. sabi ko nga ako yung walang bisyo ako pa yung nagkasakit ng ganito. pero wala ako choice kundi harapin ito. tulungan nyo sana ako kung papano ko maihahandle ng maayos ang sakit na ito. God Bless You All!

There are many doctors in the philippines actively researching nucleoside drugs safety, efficacy and combined treatment for filipinoes. Many of the adults get exposed to it and can handle it on their own. Believe that this disease can be fought. Most people can get rid of the virus before 6months. Vaccination is also crucial. Most who got infected really dont need treatment, some chronic carriers may benefit drugs but it depends on thier status.

BioSlim, I know you are very smart, and a very promising career is within your grasp. You just need to be aware that some work will not be beneficial to you and you patients. Being a carrier of hep b, you are at risk for contracting hep d, which will aggravate your situation, and transmitting it to immunocompromised patients will always be a risk even after proper aseptic techniques. Maybe academe, research or administrative nursing (MA or PhD) programs may be more suited for you as of now. You can control your disease with the right doctor, check thier credentials and records. Hopefully you dont loose your optimism and still fight for your dreams. Hope this helps.

Wag ka mawalan ng pagasa. You can pm me if you want with your hepa profile, maybe i can refer you to a specialist if you want. Do withheld personal information.

There is definitely life after hepa b. There is always hope. Education and proper management is key.What is your hepa profile? Your doctor might have diagnosed you in an early phase of hep thats why he gave you only supportive treatment. If your chronic, there are certain criteria you need to have to be a candidate for treatment. Have your immediate family also screened.

How you get it is not significant. What you get out of life is important.  Tuloy mo lang ang pangarap mo. Dasal ka lagi.

nabasa ko lahat ang lahat ngmga problem dto, tulad ninyo ako din ay isang HepB carrier, sa una masakit, prang bumagsak ang mundo pero hindi ito naging hadlang sa mga pangarap ko, wala ka namang magawa kung nakuha mo ito sa mother mo di ba? Nasa US na ako ngayun last week nag Hepa profile kami  sa unit meeting ginawa yung mga blood draws, to think na meron ako inisip ko na i pray for the best and expect for the worst kung i fire bahala na, but you know nung nalamn nila na may HepB ako im honest na meron ako, got it from my mom, you know what their reactions they are very supportive and did not fire me, pina check up pa ako, naku naluha talaga ako,  prayers lang po talaga ang katapat wag po tayong mawalan ng pag asa dahil dto sa US tanggap sa work ang may Hep B. Discrimination po iyon,  at wala sa kannilang CDC o comm disease center and bawal ang may hepa b.  Dito po sa US halos lahat na ng tao eh may vaccine na sa hepb, so hindi na talaga big deal iyun ang big deal eh yung Hep C na wala pang vaccine, so be careful na wag ninyong makuha iyon.  Basta keep on dreaming, alagaang mabuti ang katawan i know wlang gamot sa Hep B pero im always praying na may darating ding research na gagamot sa ating mga carrier.  I love you all!! hope this helps!!

I know this is fairly old post. I hope everything is better for you now. I remember my reaction finding out this. I don't know if there is a god. But sometimes, life throw a situation at us. We have to find a way survive. Something we have control of; Some we don't. We do not have full control over your health. Only certain is death. Everyone will get there at one point.

I know it's harder for people in other country. It's more strict than compare to US. Perhaps you are meant are meant to be something else. But, if this is something you are really, find a way. Surround yourself with family and love one. Take good care of yourself.

Can cure stage 4 cancers? Hep A,B,C and AIDS? Even comatose patients?
Can you post medical journals and studies regarding this? This sounds to good to be true. I would really like to know what are the active substances in this product.

Some kababayans out there are having a bad time because of their diseases, and a tall claim like that with no strong evidence is something they dont need. I really pray that a cure be found to all these illness, but I hope that this is not just one of those miracle marketing supplements that claims can cure anything but does nothing.  Taken advantage of during a time of vulnerability is just unforgivable. Is this BFAD and FDA approved?

Hello mga kabayan, kagaya nyo rin ako isang HepaB carrier ang masakit ngayon pang araw nato nalaman ko na may hepab ako, nagdonate ako ng blood sa red cross dito sa Australia last may lang tapos ngayong araw nato natanggap ko ang tawag galing sa doctor na nag screen ng dugo ko, at sinabi nya na may hepab ako pero I wondered bakit ako nagkahepab na hindi naman ako umiinom, naninigarelyo, nagdrugas nag inject ng kung ano ano pa, tsaka bago ako nagmigrate dito sa australia nagpa DNA pa ako wala naman ang doctor ko maysinabing may hepab ako, pero ngayon nagkahepab na ako hindi ko lubos akalain na magkaroon ako nito dahil wala naman akong may naisipan kung saan ko nakuha ito, kahit symptom wala nga ako may naramdaman healthy man ako tsaka hindi man ako nakaramdam ng pagod.Ng malaman ko ngayong araw na ito na may hepab ako parang gumuho ang mundo ko dahil alam ko wala pang may nahanap na cure para sa hepab nakakatakot. Ang panginoon lang siguro ang makapagaling sa akin, sa ating lahat.

Tanong ko lang po:
Ano ang iniinom nyo na posible na makagaling sa Hepab nyo? Share nyo naman sa akin Please.....God bless

hello there... i just wanna share to you my experience, i was diagnosed as Hep B positive last december 14, 2010, then i researched about this disease, it could be chronic or acute, i experienced jaundice and dark urine. I learned that by boosting your immune system you will eventually develop antibodies against hep B virus. you know what just this FEB 8 2011, i had my second blood test and i was HBsAg non reactive and anti HBs positive, the virus went away in less than 3 months! what did I do? i drink 1 liter of fresh lemon juice everyday, 2 capsules of VITAMIN E 400 IU everyday, i was in a strict vegetarian diet and I eat 1 apple a day. perhaps you might want to try this diet, it worked for me, maybe for you too. I experienced acute Hep B and now im no longer contagious.

DOLE issues guidelines on Hepatitis B in workplace
January 7, 2011 9:40am
0 Email0  0 ShareThisNew  
To prevent the spread of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) in the workplace without discriminating against infected workers, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has issued a seven-point guideline on dealing with the situation.

The guidelines, contained in DOLE Department Advisory No. 5, became effective on Tuesday, 15 days after it was published in a national newspaper.

“This is part of our efforts to ensure decent work. Workers should not only be provided just wages and benefits. They should also be protected from illnesses like Hepatitis B which may hinder their productivity and competitiveness," DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said in an article posted on the government portal on Wednesday.

Under the advisory, all private workplaces will implement a rights-based policy and a program on Hepatitis B that incorporates human rights standards and principles.

The guidelines also cover all workers regardless of their employment status.

Hepatitis B

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) website, Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver.

The virus is transmitted through contact with the blood or other body fluids of an infected person but not through casual contact, WHO said.

About 2 billion people worldwide have been infected with the virus and about 350 million live with chronic infection.

An estimated 600 000 persons die each year due to the acute or chronic consequences of hepatitis B.

The HBV is 50 to 100 times more infectious than Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) but it is preventable with a safe and effective vaccine, WHO said.

According to WHO, the symptoms of HBV include:
yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice);
dark urine;
extreme fatigue;
nausea;
vomiting, and
abdominal pain.

When infected, people can take several months to a year to recover from the symptoms, WHO said.

The disease can also cause a chronic liver infection that can later develop into cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer.

Risks for workers

The DOLE advisory requires vaccination in all occupations with a conceivable risk of Hepatitis B transmission in the workplace such as health care workers and other workers whose occupation involves the potential exchange of bodily fluids.

DOLE encourages all establishments to provide Hepatitis B immunization for all its workers.

The advisory also requires firms to include a policy on non-discriminatory, confidentiality, work accommodation, and arrangements for workers with Hepatitis B status.

It specifically states the following:

1. There shall be no discrimination of any form against workers on the basis of their Hepatitis B status consistent with international agreements on non-discrimination ratified by the Philippines (ILO C111). They shall not be discriminated against, from pre- to post-employment, including hiring, promotion, or assignment;

2. They shall not be declared unfit to work without appropriate medical evaluation and counseling;

3. Workers shall not be terminated on the basis of the actual, perceived, or suspected Hepatitis B status;

4. Workplace management of sick employees shall not differ from that of any other illness. Persons with Hepatitis-B related illness should be able to work for as long as they are medically fit;

5. Job applicants and workers shall not be compelled to disclose their Hepatitis B status and other related medical information. Co-workers shall not be obliged to reveal and personal information about fellow workers. Access to personal data relating to a worker’s Hepatitis B status shall be bound by the rules of confidentiality and shall be strictly limited to medical personnel or if legally required;

6. Employers shall take measures to reasonably accommodate workers who are Hepatitis B positive or with Hepatitis B-related illnesses;

7. Through agreements made between management and workers’ representatives, measures to support workers with Hepatitis B are encouraged through flexible leave arrangements, rescheduling of working time, and arrangement for return to work.

Workplace policy

To assist employers and workers, Baldoz said the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC), together with the Department of Health (DOH), will help companies formulate and implement their Hepatitis B Workplace Policy and Program.

She added that the DOLE will also develop a basic information package to educate workers and employees on Hepatitis B prevention and management.

Baldoz said the DOLE's regional offices, the DOH, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and local government units (LGUs), will monitor the compliance of private establishments on the implementation of the Hepatitis B workplace policy and program. – VVP, GMANews.TV

I'm a nurse, HBV(+). Vertically transmitted ung akin.
discrimination of such disease happens in our own country due to knowledge deficit, kung sino pang kapwa nurses yun pa ang maarte maski kumpleto naman cla ng booster.
sa Europe,America..mas takot cla sa PTB, HBV is not an issue.
..anyway, God plays a big role in our lives, His plans are really hard to fathom.
I'm able to practice this Nursing profession, I'm an ICU nurse and I relieve other departments also.

no need to wonder as adults hbv gets cronic (chronic) only in immune suppressed about 3% cases but lately it was no possible to make studies on adults who got cronic (chronic) hbv because none have never be found

at birth you have 95% chances to get cronic (chronic) without hbv vaccine

And now... I am still wondering if I can still continue my dreams in working abroad... Do you have any ideas about hepa c? and do you think i can still work abroad.. Please help... Thanks

you have hepa c? it's a rare case here in the Philippines. You should see a doctor quickly. You have to read some basics about hepa c in the hepatitis c community. This is the hepa b community, maybe they can help you with your condition.

Share ko lang din po regarding sa sakit ko na tulad niyo ay chronic hepa b .Nalaman ko ito nung 2006 nung nagaaply ako sa Philippine Army nang bumagsak ako sa screening. Nakakadepress nga talaga pero ayon tuloy
This is PRIME nga pala..
pa din ang buhay. Hinayaan ko lang nun kasi hindi ako nagpacheck up at nagiinom din ako ng alak. When I graduated College nung 2009 dun ako natakot kasi sa medical nga sa mga company dun ako nagresearch talaga. Nagtry na din ako ng ginseng, livolin at kung anu pa pati mga barley. Bumababa naman ang virus counts ko pero ang gusto ko talaga maalis na siya para makapag abroad na. Wag lang pabayaan ang sarili at stay away sa mga bisyo. Healthy living dapat lagi. Someday gagaling din tayo basta tuloy tuloy lang ang prayers. Palakasin na lang ang resistensya. Nakakagulat nga nung yung bro ko nagpositive pero nung second check negatve na. Yung sis ko pinabakunahan namin para safe.

Hi! How's everyone here?

I am also a registered nurse. I was hepa B nonreactive last jan.2005, when we had our medical exam at school sept 2005, it turned out to be hepa B reactive. I didn't know where I got it. I was really down that time and I got discriminated. I am blessed I finished my studies in nursing last 2008. I passed the board exam and I am currently working as a staff nurse for almost 4 years. Now, I am preparing myself for employment overseas. As far as I know, Canada, Australia, USA, New Zealand and UK are some countries which does not discriminate us. I haven't took my lab tests yet since 2009, and I am praying that this virus would be gone.
Continue praying! Don't lose hope. God will give us the best.

Friends!! I just wanna ask regarding its treatment. I am an inactive Chronic Hepa B carrier.

4900949_tn?1361384160
Usually Chronic inactive Hepatitis B condition is not being treated due to minimal/non-threatening to no damage at all in the liver. Also effectiveness of medications to chronic inactive patients has not been very encouraging. Doctors usually advise patients to monitor their condition every 6 mos. through tests such as SGPT/ALT (sometimes more tests are advised like Hbeag or even HBV-DNA) to determine if Inactive condition has become active again and hence is causing damage to the liver (SGPT/ALT is elevated). In this case, a treatment will likely be recommended by a doctor. Better consult w/ your gastroenterologist for more information.

I am so thankful and blessed that i found this forum. Kakuha ako ng lakas ng loob and courage to face this disease. I am also healthy carrier of hep b, which i got this from my mom. RN din ako since 2005. Jung nag aaral pa ako, non reactive pa ako, in fact bunugyan pa ako ng 3 doses of vaccine. Nakapagtrabaho ako sa maliit nahosp after grad. Until one day, nung nakapasa sa exam at training sa isa sa mga magandang  tertiary hospital dito sa pinas, nalaman ko na hep b carrier ako. And sadly, un ang rason kung bakit hanggang ngayon ndi ako makabalik sa bedside. Maraming beses na rin akong umiyak dahil sa frustration. Lahat na siguro ng frnds ko nasa US na.. at sa twing tinatanong nila kung bakit nandito pa ko, nagdadahilan na lang ako. I never told them my real condition because im afraid of stigma. Pero, mabuti parin ang Diyos kasimay trabaho ako ngayon... Nurse pa rin pero ndi na bedside. Kaya lang.....

Sa mga oras na ito, nakaadmit ako sa hospital, ooperahan sana ako but the surgeon deferred it because my sgpt was so high.. at gumuho ulit ang mundo ko... hopeless and fears ang nararamdaman ko. Natatakot ako pagbalik ko ng work eh makita nika sa medcert ko yung Dx.

May God give strength to face this...please pray for me too... thanks sa community.

I am a nurse! A licensed nurse here in the Philippines! Is there a life after Hepatitis B? Of course! Buhay pa naman ako up to this date after being diagnosed of having CHB.

The latest status as per employment right now e hindi na pwede basta tanggalin ang tao kapag na diagnose ng Hepa B without undergoing to health committee and w/out knowing the real status of person. Meron yan detalyadong GUIDELINES from DOLE.

Again, I am a nurse! A licensed nurse.. and yet, I am gainfully employed in a special tertiary hospital here. I submitted myself on NUCS (antiviral meds) and on constant monitoring for critical markers of  hepatitis B.

Soon.. A functional cure will be out in the market! My rough estimate would be 2-3 yrs! While waiting for this, just take your antiviral meds+ Pegays (if prescribed).

So just keep going! You should have the right knowledge on this since you are HCP.

This virus will soon eradicate your body, our body. Kaya bilang na ang araw nila!

the sad part is that even employment agencies for abroad don't have procedure about proper handling of applicants with hepb cases. they only care for money without considering the psychological trauma that this virus bring.

how to get employment abroad? kasi pag-dadaan ka sa mga agencies is kasama na talaga sa package na yung hepb test. and then usually there's slim chance for the employer na mag-issue nang waiver kasi kulang sa support yung mga agencies natin.

may alam pa ba kayong paraan dyan? please share. thanks

I am hepb choric at transtmitted na daw, at kahit isang myembro ng pamilya ko o bestfriend ay walang nakakaalam nito kundi tanging ako lang. Natatakot akong malaman nila ang kalagayan ko. I found this virus in my college days back in 2009 at gumuho talaga ang mga pangarap ko. Nakapag trabaho naman ako pero in the end di ako nareregular dahil pag nirequire na ang medical dun na ko bumabagsak. I called it as a curse! Parang inalisan tayo ng karapatan na makapamuhay at makapagtrabaho ng malaya. Everytime na naiisip ko ang kalagayan ko lalo na ang katayuan ko sa buhay ngayon, na dapat may maganda akong career at bubuo na ng pamilya, parang gumuguho ang mundo ko at unti unti akong pinapatay ng kalagayan na to.

Nalaman ko lng dn na merong akong hepa b after kung bumagsak sa medical papuntang middle east.. Since hindi food related ung trabaho pinadalhan ako ng waiver ng company. Nahold pa rin ung paper ko sa POEA kahit my waiver na, mabuti nalang ung kapit bahay namin may kakilala sa POEA at naka-alis din.. Maluwag ang medical examination sa Bahrain kung hindi food related ang magiging trabaho mo.. Lately ko nlng din nalaman na lahat kami magkakapatid eh meron ganitong sakit pero since then hndi pako nagpa-hepa profile para malaman kung anong status ng virus sa katawan ko.. wala nmn symptoms na katulad ng sinasabi ng iba pero sa pilipinas ko paplano mgpacheck-up kasi sabi ng pilipinong doctor dito kapag nalaman nila papauwiin ka kaagad..

Pinaka magandang paraan para makapunta dito is through visit visa para maiwasan ung mga medical examination jan sa pilipinas. Tuloy lang ang buhay kahit may mga ganitong problema ang mahalaga magtiwala lng sa Panginoon..Include God in your plans and he will bless it as He promise

Hello GoodMan 1,
Thanks for mentioning the Blood Electrification. I've experimented with this gadget using my self-built blood electrification. The result was, lumabas sa ilong ko yung na electricute na mga pathogens. Meron kasi akong sinus which I think acquired in our work, semiconductor industry. Then I started building for my friends which they have requested. I'm selling this for
Php 2,700/pc. Includes TENS pads, 4pcs., battery 9volts, ac adaptor 9volts.
Try nyo! This is following the circuit of Bob Beck. 6Hz & 35 Hz frequency selection.
27volts output, 100-700microAmp. This blood electrification is combine with Magnetic Pulser also by Bob Beck.
This is Php 5,600/pc.

Thanks,
WildwoodAlberta
