Response from Dr. McGovern
Because your surface antigen is positive, you have chronic hepatitis B. But I don't see results of your HBV DNA testing. This is important, because you can have a negative e antigen and still have virus in your blood.
Hopefully depending on your occupation, even if your HBV DNA is positive, this will not interfere with your plans.
