Can you prove the relationship between the incident and your current hep c? Otherwise I doubt you will have much luck with that.
Have you tested positive on the HCV RNA by PCR test for the hep c virus itself or only the hep c antibody test?
There are people who have no idea how they were exposed to hep c. That they have no known risk factors.
Hi I am hoping that your body was able to clear it. What prevented you from going back in 6 months later?
I'm only asking because each state has a statute of limitation to sue for medical incidents. I have been through this so thought I would let you know before you waste a lot of time and money
I'm hopeful that your body fought it off. Newer treatments are much easier than they were even 5 years ago.
Lynn has answered your concerns beautifully. I guess it was better to get a false positive and then with the second test finding out you don't have it; than getting a false negative.
I got a false negative, went along living my life for 10 more years until I found out I did have it.
I was in a similar condition with Lynn.
I wish I had known 10 years earlier.
Congratulations and take care!
