    Diagnosed with Hepatitis B;whats next?

    Hi Friends,

    Last month i undergone lithotripsy to remove the stone. During that operation they took the routine blood/urine tests. I came out of the hospital after the operation happily but after 1 month i had to go to see the urologist again because i got pain again in the same place(left lowed abdomn).That time only my doctor told that i have hepatitis b and it has been confirmed during the blood test. and i will get continuous infection so u need to be in anto biotic.And also he told they took all precautions during the operation for taking care of the hepatitis b infections.

    I was hell shocked after hearing that. The doctor then suggested me to check for my wife and kids , we rushed to hospital and checked for my wife and kids , by gods grace they are negative and i went again to see the same doctor with the reports.

    When asked about the treatment for it he directed me to a experienced physician in tat hospital.The physician asked me take the below tests

    Anti HCV- Non reactive
    Anti Hbc total - Postive
    Anti HBE - Positive

    i met him with the reports , he told that i am infected long back, but i am a career and no need to worry. i can pass the virus to others but anti bodies are generated in my body so nothing to worry. But i should be in observation.No need to follow any food diet.This is what he suggested.

    But after discussing with few friends/reading details in the internet. i decided to go a gasteroenterologist with this reports. The Gastero doctor looked at the reports and told me the physcian took unwanted test , please take only the below tests

    1.Anti HBC IGM
    2. HBV DNA quantitative

    i got the results of the first test(Anti HBC IGM), its negative. but i am waiting for the quantitative test results.

    Friend please tell me now , what this report suggest? Is this virus in my body for long time? i never gave/brought blood from others. I am from india and 28 yrs old married. I am not sure how i am infected. Can you please throw some light on this? thanks in advance
