My husband's lab results came back from our insurance company that said the following:
- hemolysis - 14
- fructosamine 1.14
sgot (ast) 34
sgpt (alt) 65
hbs-ag - reactive
hbe-ab - positive
When we had our (now) two year old, he received the vaccines, and during my pregnancy nothing was detected for me. My husband is going in tomorrow for a follow-up test with his doctor. My toddler and I are going in on Friday. I am devastated. Is he still contagious (above)?
I don't recall ever being vaccinated. I am sure that if my husband has it, then I do too. I am just worried about our baby.
He is contagious. You need to determine if he is chronic or acute. You should not panic. Your baby has been vaccinated so don't worry about him. There is no guarantee that you have been infected. You need to be tested.
When I was pregnant I tested negative. I just got off the phone with our pediatrician and she doubts very much that our child has it because of the vaccines received at birth. I am extremely relieved but am planning for additional testing anyway.
I am not ready to deal with the reasons perhaps why my husband contracted this until I know my situation and that of our baby.
I asked about his ethnicity b/c many Asians are infected at birth or in infancy and so he would have been positive and asymptomatic forever. Its still possible, actually. Lots of tests left to do. Let me assure you that this is not the end of the world. A bump in the road that many of us are living (well) with. Best wishes.
