    Yeah,I don't think that you can either. That would be hard to detect I believe.

    I contracted mine through a double blood transfusion back in 81. That's how long I've had mine.

    Your diagnosis was probably easy to determine. I guess it's hard if someone was an iv user.

    Thats true.
    Is it possible to think back to any people or certain individuals you were associated with -who you may of felt put you at risk? Then again, I supose folks you may not of suspected could of been the carriers? It is hard unless you could determine that it was a specific period time you were using. You aren't a veteran are you? So how did you find out? What symptoms are you having...that is if you don't mind answering.

    It's just a guess. I wish there was a test or way to know for sure how long a person hads been infected. All a doctor can do is look at all your lab work, biopsy results etc. & make an educated guess.

    Maybe one day they can? They really only discovered this in 1989.
