hbsag negative hbsab negative hep b core ab, total negative what does this mean? Was the first test a mistake?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Probably was a false positive test. Either that or you have completely cleared the virus and have no antibodies! That would be even more unlikely! I think you are virus free and should forget it! You may want to get HBV vaccine! DTD
