INTRODUCTION THREAD: People affected by Hep B

Try the magnesium powder…a heaping teaspoon of it with 1/2 glass of water, stir well…really worked for me
I liked your FOG acronym!

If all the symptoms, abdominal pain is the only one I’ve not had. All the rest of the things that they looked for when I was first hospitalized showed up AFTERWARDS. The bloating was bad…had to have 35 lbs of water drained at one point. My private part looked like a coiled up salami. I didn’t recognize my body. I went from 3water pills, 2x20mg and 1x40mg for about 5 months and now I take none!!
Good luck. I have so much to learn from all of you. I don’t know how I’d react to going through this a second time…

Hi @Rex,
I am sorry to hear about your suffering. I really empathize with you and it saddens me when I hear stories like this. I don’t know much about healthcare in Malawi, but are you able to see a doctor who can take a look at you and see what can be done? Bansah1

Hi Denny (and others interested),

Just to make you aware that we have a regular video chat free for any HBC users to attend and catch up virtually - Virtual Meet - April 2024 - #4 by ThomasTu. Please feel free to register and/or vote for a time that suits you for the next rounds.

Dear @rex,

I’m sorry to hear about your situation. It might be worth reaching out to local groups to help. I found PAWEM (Home) who appear to be supportive of hepatitis causes in Malawi. Can you contact them for help?

Hi,
I’m Jo, 43, UK. Found out I had hep B age 7. I wish there had been a forum like this when I was younger so thank you for setting this up.

I’d love to talk openly about having hepb but I worry about the impact on my family (family members have it and want it private) and my son (he doesn’t have it but I’m worried other parents would treat him differently if they knew I have it).

I’ve been readings threads on this forum for a couple of days and I’ve learnt so much already. I’ve mostly ignored the hep B because I’ve felt well but my recent test results have prompted me to try to face what it’s like to have the virus.

Thank you

Dear @josocks,

Welcome to the community and thank you for sharing your experiences. I think many here have been in the same boat as you and hope you find the support you need here to help you negotiate your condition.

Cheers,
Thomas
