On a friday I got the twinrix vaccination, on the very next day I got my blood drawn and 5 days later i was HBsAG positive. Then I went to my doctor and he took my blood and he sent it out and I came back HbsAg negative.
I have read that the vaccination can cause a false positive for up to 18 days and even 3 to 4 weeks.
My blood test showed my ALT level at 20 ......normal being between 7 and 56
My AST level was 18.....normal being between 5 and 40
So is it a 50% chance I have heb b?
Also, I would like to know if the current medications such as hespera can allow a person with heb b to continue to run, bike, play hockey and just be healthy and happy.
This is all come into my life because of a friend who was recently diagnosed and I went to get vaccinated and the story goes from there.
Here is your mail:
From my post you should understand that the second time I got tested I showed hbsag -. Should I just get on with my life and continue to take the vaccinations? Do you think I have hep b?
> If you trust your second test, you should continue with vaccination. If not, you may need to get tested again for HBsAg and HBsAb to confirm you are clear.
