I received a blood transfusion when I was 16 yrs old. I was a plasma donor, and when the test for Hep C came out in the early 90,s They told me I had the antibody to Hep C. I had forgotten it , and a couple months ago, went in to be a bone marrow donor, and again was told that I have the antibody to hep c. My question is this: Is it possible to have just the antibody, and not be sick with the disease? I have done some research, and the only other symptom I have had is the Arthritis, aching joints, etc. I also have worked in the health field my whole life. I work in a Blood Bank now, and they tell me I am not contagious and there is nothing that I do in my job that would make me infectious to others. I have also had babies and I fear that maybe I could have passed this antibody on to them. Since I havent ever been sick, I have ignored this news that I have the antibody.. Am I being stupid here?
