HBsAG is positive

Dears,

First of all thank you very much for all you participitaing in this forum and helping others.

One week before my HBsAG test was positive in the blood bank when I was trying to reserve blood for my wife for her deliverey but her results wer negative ( Thank god ) and even in the month of May 2012.

My question is how did I have this virus as she doesn't have ? my baby hep b vaccine is due on 3rd of march ?
should i request them to vaccinate now itself instead of waiting for another 5 weeks ?

I have symptoms like ......

1) yellow colour urine
2) Black tools
3) loads of sleeping

what it means ? I am going to meet doctor tomorrow for testing ....

Thanks again all...
Charan.

You should tell the doctors that you have hbv and want your baby vaccinated they know what to do.

If you do not trust the test do it somewhere else.

There are two types of hbv, chronic and acute. Chronic you get from childhood and acute at adulthood. You can get hbv through blood or other body liquids. Infected Adults normally recover after 6 month.

You can check if you are chronic or acute by antihbc igM test.

You may be inactive carrier of virus and not be very infectious, that is why your whife is not infected, or you may also  have acute infection that you have got recently.
Anyway the baby is the only one at risk, so must be vaccinated asap.

Or you may had already infected your wife and she had sucessfully  recovered from acute phase and developed Hbv antibodies. Check her Anti-Hbs level and vaccinate your baby.

Ok I will go and check ....

what are the body fluids that can infect others ? do you think my symptoms cause any liver damage or any further ?

Thanks ...

The symptoms do not match, should be brown urine, white stool.
You can not tell until you do liver function tests, ultrasound and fibroscan.

If you go for tests test also

HbsAg quantity (make sure it is in iu/ml)
Hbv dna quantitive

AntiHbcIgg,

AntihbcigM

This will help you to understand what is going on.
