I was helping the plumber...
I was helping the plumber at work throw away an old toilet and the dirty water splashed me and hit my legs, hands (which had cuts), and my lips and maybe inside my mouth. What am I at risk of getting? HIV? Hepititis? Ecoli?

like e coli and hepatitis A

was it an old toilet?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Wasn't used for a few days. Maybe a week. I had my hep. A and b vaccines. Two hep A vaccines, 2012 and 2015. Hep b vaccines 1 in 1995 and 2 in 1996. I'm 22 now.

Ok. when were you exposed?

The toilet was out for a week i think, or two. I'm bad at keeping track of time

What I'm about to tell you is gross.

In your day to day life you put more fecal particles in your mouth than this

Yeah that is gross! Ha.
Does my vaccines protect me from hep. A and B?
Do I have anything to worry about?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It's been a while for hep. B. Does it last for 21 years? And hep. A was 2015

yes, your vaccine does

Nothing you can do now

you might get a stomach bug but I doubt it

Customer reply replied 8 months ago

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
