You were never at risk. If you didn't jab the needle in your vein you were not at risk.
So how conclusive can you say my 5wk test was?
I've also had a needle stick exposure, mine was in the shin area.
Symptoms are not a good indicator of infection.
This happened six months ago and you were tested 5 weeks ago (6 weeks /5 weeks) so your fine. I would advise test for hep a/b/c, just in case but probably not a concern right teak?
Most show up pos @ 30 days/ the next set show up between 6-8 weeks and almost all @ 12 weeks. Sorry about misunderstanding that you stated that you tested negative 6 months ago @ the five week mark after you were exposed. You could test @ 12 weeks just to put yourself @ ease Buttenss22. I'm sure you will be hiv negative.
You didn't have a risk and you didn't need to test. If you had a concern you would have taken your concern to the person that deals with occupational exposures. Or is that what you did and they told you, that you didn't have a risk?
I have gotten tested for only Hep B/C and also had Hep b series done. Everthing on the bloodwork was Negative! Am just a lil freaked out!!!
NO I didnt talk 2 anyone in occupational Ex. I think I just need to get enough guts to get tested and put my mind to ease! since that day I have been Overly stressed, and everything that happens to me (symptoms) I always think that i may have it!
