Tests for HepC
Could or Has there ever been a time that you could have been tested for hep C without knowing it(besides giving blood) ???ie: surgery,giving  birth? I amazed at the people that know exactly when they acquired this disease with all the possible transmission routes.(unless you used IV drugs) cindy

My thoughts are they should test everybody before any surgical procedures so they could take extra precautions.

No I dont believe they automatically test for it or I would have known many many years ago pre-operations and children etc.

Most people really have no idea when they got this disease and only can guess pretty much.

I had 3 C sections and they never found it. Nygirl is right. It really is pitiful though since SO MANY people are infected.
