Changing Hepatitis C Test Results
The information from PMI that I was infected with hepatitis C from blood screening with a number of germs that are still low, after I checked at the hospital in poly, my blood was checked in laboratory and the results were negative, or there was no virus, but pmi still could not accept my blood donor , Question …….. What is my next step, to find answers, how is my health, whether I am healthy or have been exposed to a virus, before it becomes severe, for example it turns out I am exposed to a virus

Every blood donated will be screened first to ensure that blood is safe to donate and does not become a medium for disease transmission. If the screening results reveal that a donor's disease will be informed and asked to be checked again.
Your steps to go to a doctor for internal medicine is right. If there are differences in results, you can re-check some time in the future. You can also find a second opinion with other internal medicine doctors if necessary.
Hepatitis C itself is caused by the hepatitis C. Virus. Patients may be asymptomatic or show some symptoms such as fever, decreased appetite, weakness, abdominal pain, vomiting, and the appearance of yellow discoloration of the skin, eyes, and nails. Some patients can recover within 6 months, while some will develop into chronic. Complications of hepatitis C include liver cancer and cirrhosis of the liver.
For the time being since it is still in social distancing to reduce transmission of corona virus infection, you do not need to double check it. Just do a healthy lifestyle and reduce activities outside the home. You can consult with a doctor of internal medicine after the situation allows and the transmission rate of corona has been much reduced huh.
Hope it helps you,
