Cured mild hep B.
« on: July 02, 2013, 04:37:28 pm »
Guys, lemme introduce first myself. I'm an emt-nurse. last October of 2012 i departed to Saudi Arabia to work as a nurse.  but before that in my pre-deployment medical exam, the result was Fit to work. (negative for hep B). when i took the medical exam in KSA, the found out that i was positive mild hep B confirmed by PCR. and then they sent me back to my country. i took a second opinion the result was (non reactive HBsAg, reactive HBcAb, reactive HBsAb). is it really possible that i was infected with that virus in a short time? am i cured to this disease? or is it possible that the result of the PCR was a hoax?

ff up question guys..

I'm currently banned in that state because of my Hep B record in their Ministry of Health Database. is there any chance that i could lift that ban? or any petition needed to be filed?

Hi Skid,

Welcome to the forums.

It sounds like the infection likely took place more than six months ago and has been successfully controlled by the immune system.

Check out the chart on this page...
