Hi, I have had swelling of legs and feet and knumbness if outside my right foot. I've had bloods taken for HIV which came back negative hep c came back 0.3% or 3% and they said its unlikely I have hrp c but what blood test done again :-( told me both different times said I have to go get bloods done again. I'm really worried now that I've got hep c???
The info you provided doesn't tell me anything.What kind of test did you get?There are no tests that just gives you a percentage probability,it's either negative or positive.
The only way you can find out if you have it is if you first get a test for the anti bodies,if that is negative then you don't have it,if it's positive than you get a further test which is called a HCV RNA PCR.Check out the website.
