HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD HEP C? YES YOU ARE YOUNG FOR SURE. KEEP A LOG AS TO HOW YOU ARE FEELING DAILY. GET COPIES OF ALL LABS AND TESTS. FOLLOW WHAT YOUR MD TELLS YOU.

I was told I had Hepatitis at age 15 after swimming in a pool with someone who was infected. Many kids had contracted it that day. I was told I could not give blood. Not sure which type of Hep I have. I didn't have any symptoms really but out of school for at least two weeks and everybody in contact with me had to get a shot. This was in 1974. I get blood tests every year and my liver is always fine. Just curious which type would this be that you can get it just by swimming in a pool and I can't give blood? I have asked my Dr. but he was pretty vague with his answer.

I DOUBT VERY MUCH YOU GOT HCV FROM THE POOL.

TELL YOUR MD YOU WANT TESTED FOR WHAT KIND OF HEP YOU HAVE OR HAD.
