If a blood test for hep b/c was negative at 3 months post exposure would I need further testing at a later date or should I take this as conclusive? I've had tension and mild pain around liver area but not sure if its related to stress or something else like kidney stones.
Almost 90% of healthy adults who are infected with the hepatitis B virus recover and develop protective antibodies against future hepatitis B infections. If you are still doubtful you may need repeat test after 3 months. If there is abdominal pain consult your doctor he may advise ultrasound abdomen. Do write to me again.
Best luck and regards!
