Response from Dr. McGovern
You are an inactive carrier which is great news. This means that you do not have active HBV disease. You do NOT need treatment since there is no virus in your bloodstream.
You should continue monitoring your status, like you are doing, to be certain that your infection does not become active.
Some people may clear the surface antigen too - but this is not common and there is nothing in particular to do for this to happen.
