I read the letter(I had not read the letter until recently,someone told
me this) and it said "You are NOT infected.However,due to the error you
can no longer give blood again" and it recommends the second blood
test. I'm very sure I don't have it,hell,I'm no where near the risk
factors and I read that a FP reading means that I'm at a lower risk for
developing the disease?

I don't know,just seems kind of,well,stupid that I can't donate blood
because of a reading error. Thanks for the help.I'll let you know what
happens.

Could this have added to the false testing?

Its very dissapointing that I can't donate ever again because of this.

This seems all very strange.

How the hell does someone determine with a single test what and what isn't a
"false positive"?

Regardless, it seems to me you ought to get your own doc to do an HCV antibody
test pronto. If that comes up negative, breath a sigh of relief and forward a
copy of the test results to your local Red Cross.

If it comes up positive, have your doc do an HCV PCR RNA (aka Viral Load test)
to see if you're still carrying any active bugs. If *that* comes up negative,
breath a sigh of relief as you somehow managed to clear the virus on your own.

If it comes up positive, come meet the rest of the family at

Hi,I donated blood for the first time a few weeks ago and just received
the results today. The letter said that my blood was rejected because I
have a FALSE POSITIVE for hepatitis C. Is this a common occurence? I'm
going in for a follow up blood test but I was just wondering how often
does this happen and if i can donate blood again.


Thanks.
