Response from Dr. McGovern

If I remember correctly, you have chronic hepatitis B infection and now your virus is being suppressed by the medications you are taking. That is good news.

Follow up with your physician to keep watching your liver test results including your HBV DNA - your virus level. Continue treatment until your physician feels that it is time to stop. The length of treatment will depend on your response.
