I am new to the forum as up until today, I have always classed myself as a very fit and healthy young lady. I am currently going through the immigration process in an attempt to move to Australia, and have just had my medical as part of my visa conditions. I got a call from the clinic this morning to inform me that my Hep C result has come back as "borderline" and needs to be tested further. They were unable to elaborate on what they mean by "borderline" other than they don't think I have anything to worry about and that the test is extremely sensitive and this can sometimes happen. I am extremely worried and was wondering if anyone could offer me any advice? I'd had a sickness bug two days prior to my blood tests, could this affect the results? I am not, nor have ever been an IV drug user, have never had a needle stick injury, have had the same sexual partner for nine years and was tested for Hep C, Hep B and HIV four years ago when changing jobs and was negative.
I am going for another test tomorrow at my regular GP, and the clinic that is dealing with my visa medical said that my blood is going to be tested further. They said that this can take 4 - 6 weeks - does this sound correct? It seems awfully long to me!
Anyway, sorry this is so long; it is just that I am really panicking here!
