7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance was diagnosised with Hep B the last week of july, she has been under the care of a blood/specialist in this field, and has been on the best medication avaliable for over six months. She has had a new blood test about the condition in October, and after the doctor see the report, it is near non-detactable levels, another blood test was done late December and the levels are even lower. She has all of her records showing the vast decline in the viris being nearly non-detactable, and a "Permit to Travel" (was the title to the letterhead) from the specialist, saying the patient listed has made great progress, and shows near non-detactable levels of the virus, and after the blood work in December.,.,.,.,she has more positive office notes sign by Dr. Ortiz.

Her medical is this coming Thursday-Friday, and I am very un-sure of what to expect., any and all comments, welcomed.., and thank you in advance for any comments!

Well, I'm not an expert and I have no experience in dealing with Hepa B, I would advice that your fiancee bring all the medical records related to her condition.

SLEC will have the final say though. Good luck to your fiancee and keep the faith. :innocent:

Sorry for asking the same question 2 times, but no adequate responces the first time, is there not a health type of questionaire, asking what you have had, and not had? I am sure all Hep's are asked about, and with her excellent documentation, she would have to be truthful as no one should ever not tell the truth in this process. The medical is Thursday, and my nerves ""are shot"".,.,.,,.thanks for the opinion, any thing else you have to add, please do so, you seem very intelligent!

When my wife went for her medical she told the doctor durning the medical she had hep b. We had no documation at the time so she was instruced to go to a local doctor and get the test resultes for her hep b it was hard for her to find a doctor in manila because she is from butuan city but she did find one that day and was tested and took the results back to the medical doctor the next day and was cleared. They told her she did have the hep b virus but it wasnt active. It was very expensive for us to find a doctor get tested and then get the results in 1 day but we made it happen. In your case you have everything from your local doctor (we had no documation) I am sure you will be fine tell her to be honest and up front about it. Durning the interview at the empassy nothing was ever asked about her hep b. Believe me when i tell you this for me it was the most nerve racking time durning the whole process My wife didnt even know she had hep b until she got preg with our first child.I too was worried she would be denied because of her hep but she is here now and very happy to be here, Try not to worry too much you will make it.
