No: Nash is non-alcoholic steatohepatitis; it is a more severe form of fatty liver disease, in which the liver is now exhibiting signs of inflammation. This is not contagious.

Depends: The answer depends on how certain it is that this vaccine was really the cause of the apparent reaction, and the type of reaction. For potential life threatening reactions which are very, very rare then holding the second dose is the obvious answer. One dose of hepatitis a is very effective in providing protection by the way.

You need to ask the : Doc who did your surg as that doc knows how everything went and u didnt say what type of surg you had, laparoscopy, robot open? And did you have any problems after like bleeding or infection, etc. Or none, so call you surgeon and ask him or her, and don't go sue the doc unless there was really something that happened or was done that was below the standard of care so get a 2nd opinion if neces.
