Response from Dr. McGovern
Your surface antibody means you are protected from getting hepatitis B. The elevated bilirubin may mean that you have something called Gilberts which is a benign condition related to how your body handles a substance called bile. I would discuss that possibility with your physician.
Sounds like you are doing very well.
