HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if it is the asymptomatic condition right now then it is nothing to worry, it may not be in bacterial infection but it could be viral infection, old history nothing to do anything with fever, even complain of abdomen pain could be nonspecific hope this information helps.
I find this answer helpful
