Hello, 

im an oncology nurse who was deaccessing a patients Huber needle when it felt like something came into my eye. As I was telling the other nurse she reported the patient was hep c positive with a viral load over 1 million. I didn’t even think about it at the time and barely flushes the out. Did all the baseline tests now I go in for the hcv rna 3 weeks post exposure. However in the last week or so I’ve been experiencing symptoms “ night swears, right upper quadrant discomfort and muscle aches” is this all stress related because I know I’m extremely stressed out. Any feedback would be appreciated!
