worried about exposure
Anyone out there who help me determine what I might be dealing with?

I will describe chronologically what has transpired.

October 3 – potential (?) risky sexual exposure, condom-protected (penetrative) sex, after exposed penis/vagina genital contact (non-penetrative)
November 28 – one night of nausea & vomiting/ stomach flu?????
Next 45 days – always chilled, generally/non-specifically felt unwell; armpit pain…
January 3 – negative HIV test (Orasure)
January 5 – started itching all over
January 30 - URQ pain; saw PCP - suspected Gall bladder issue. Blood/Urine results showed all within range/normal EXCEPT following: ALT elevated 49, GGTP elevated 124, Lipase elevated 148. (AST within range 20; amylase within range 74) Abdominal sonogram negative.
February 8 – URQ pain lessened to a degree; follow-up blood work showed all normal/within range. (ALT 43, Lipase 19, amylase 39) GGTP not tested for reason unknown. (AST was 22) PCP didn’t even test for hep. Why?
Today - still itchy all over, URQ pain/discomfort less intense than 1/30, but real, constant.

Is this indicative of Hep b/c?
Ie. Would blood work levels present differently if so?
Can I absolutely rule out hep b/c acute infection based on above?

Any thoughts?

You'll probably get more responses if you  re-type your post directly into the "Post A Comment" field. Apparently you first wrote the message in your word processor program and then copy and pasted. For some reason that doesn't work very well here and you get the strange characters you did.

Good chances of sexual diseases - more than HepC.

Get tested. STDs, AIDS, Hep if you are worried.
