Many thanks @ThomasTu for this conversation and to all that have contributed. It has shared light and inspiration in times of worry and confusions in such situations for me.
My Name is Cornelius Vulumu, 29yr, from The South Pacific Ocean— of Solomon Islands. Pharmacist by profession for 5 years.
Was diagnosed with Hep B in 2018, resigned from work in 2018 got a scholarship to do Medicine in Taiwan. This was an opportunity of a lifetime to get proper medical checks from a Liver specialist in Taiwan, where medical bills are covered by the scholarship.
So I did get my liver checked by a gastroenterologist(which we don’t have in the Solomon’s such specialists and resources), liver scan showed hematoma 0.5mm size. The Dr said not to worry about it, it’s not related to the Hep B it will go away eventually,. Viral load came to 20,000,000 so we started on Entecavir for 2 months.
Unfortunately political ties between Solomon island Govt and Taiwan didn’t go well, so we have to be repatriated back home. So, yeah the frustration and worry is on going again:man_facepalming:t5:. Haven’t done any viral load checks, and even NO (Entecavir)treatment for a year now! I only did a Liver scan in our Hospital here in the Solomon’s, which came out clear and normal, was surprised the radiographers here didn’t pick the hematoma, could it have vanished? Or the machines used are not to the standards of picking it up?
If @John.Tavi or anyone could share some insight would be helpful.
Currently am working at a private chemist, not that am getting Entecavir by any chances, am reserved from getting it until I get a full routine liver check(what my gut says) but I can procure the meds, but I really need a specialist advice before doing so, when ethics comes into play!
Am not feeling any discomfort or anything, am keeping my self physically fit and healthy BMI is well monitored at 23, so am good and healthy no complications or medical conditions, it’s just the Hep B that worries me.
Hope to hear from you all, your words and thoughts through sharing motivates are second each time.
