Hepatitis A (HAV), unlike Hep B and Hep C has no chronic phase, only an acute phase. Rest, drink plenty of fluids and follow your doctor's advice. You will develop protective antibodies as a result so you will not become infected again in the future.

Good luck,

I'm unfamiliar with immigration policy. You will develop HAV antibodies as a result of this infection that will persist for years, if not for life. However, the active viral infection will not continue beyond 6 months. Speak to your doctor about your concerns-

  AST (SGOT)    41 U/L  M(21-42) U/L

What does this mean?

Thank you bill

Bilirubin is within reference range and SGPT (ALT) is only slightly elevated; these values are usually considerably higher for patients with acute infection. Ask your doctor to review your HAV serology; he may have misinterpreted previous infection. Good luck,
