But I went to another private hospital for testing HBsAg on 02 feb2008 . The reslut of HbsAg is negative.So again i went to the blood bank(GH) on 4 feb 2008 , and told about this. They again checked my bood But the result was negative this time. My q is .. with in this one week this HBSAG can be recoverable.. ? I ll tell one think.. I have already donated the blood on 2006.
Well, if you had a acute infection, you would have felt sick due to symptoms. And if chronic, it would be unlikely to clear. So i think your first test was probably a false positive. If your HBsAg is now negative, check your HepB core antibodies, if that is positive, you had a cleared infection. If negative, you never had HepB to begin with. And if you are not immuned by presense of surface antibodies, get vaccinated so no worries.
