Any information on this would be helpful, I'm so scared, I don't even want to get a test!
Get tested. It is a good idea for anyone who is concerned about possible exposure. Further, it is a good idea for anyone, period.
You're concern has been expressed very clearly. There are numerous past discussions about sexual transmission and risk factors if you are interested in a more thorough discussion on those issues. (check the archives)
It appears to me that you have identified this fellow as high risk for having hepatiis C. Well, he may be a high risk for other diseases as well. My advice to you is to see your doctor and to be tested for all STD's and for hepatitis C.
Using condoms decreases risk of aquiring diseases when you are not familiar with your sexual parner's medical history (and when you are, for that matter)
I hope this helps,
