Wife of Hep
« on: May 08, 2017, 12:07:43 pm »
Hey
My ex-husband was diagnosed with hep many years ago.
He was a junkie and got it from sharing needles
He got clean off the drugs but drank himself into stage 3 liver disease.
He now has Hep B and claims that many people with hep c and cirrosis do get Hep b from their pre-existing liver disease.
Is it true that hep c patients can all of a sudden come down with help b
Or did he relaspe and pick up another junkie disease.
Can hep c cause hep b in liver disease patients

Hepatitis b and hepatitis c are entirely different viruses. They both cause liver irritation and sometimes damage but having hep c will not cause you to contract hep b.

There are many here who have hep c but do not have hep b. I had hep c for 37 years but I do not have hep b. I was diagnosed with F4 fibrosis 9 years ago which means I have liver cirrhosis so more liver damage than your ex as he is only F3. I can't say he progressed due to drinking some people just progress to higher levels of liver damage regardless.

I hope your husband plans on treating with the new medicines that can at least cure his hep c if he hasn't already.

From the CDC FAQ about hepatitis B for the general public

https://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/hbv/bfaq.htm

How is Hepatitis B spread?

Hepatitis B is spread when blood, semen, or other body fluid infected with the Hepatitis B virus enters the body of a person who is not infected.

People can become infected with the virus during activities such as:
Birth (spread from an infected mother to her baby during birth)
Sex with an infected partner
Sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment
Sharing items such as razors or toothbrushes with an infected person
Direct contact with the blood or open sores of an infected person
Exposure to blood from needlesticks or other sharp instruments

Yeah
So my husband said that his new Hep B was brought on directly by his pre-existing hep c
He is such a lying douche bag
 Glad he's bleeding out his dicc and being used as a pharma
