Response from Dr. McGovern

You appear to have active HBV infection.

I would see if you can get liver function tests. If normal this will be very reassuring. If abnormal, you will need more monitoring to determine if you might need treatment.

It would be nice to have testing for HBV DNA if this is available to you to see how how your virus in your blood is before you undergo any therapy.

Concerned that test results are false
Alchohol consumption after treatment
