My condition now Dec 4, 2009


I am a Hepatitis B Patient. I came to know 5 years ago. My HBsAg and HBeAg was both positive with High volume of HBV DNA. Then I took Adefovir Dipivoxil INN 10 mg and continued for last five years. my ALT and SGPT always remained under control. My present condition is Anti-HbeAg positive and HBeAg negative. Still HBsAg positive. Viral load or HBV DNA negative/zero. I wish to know my condition. Whether i am well or not? how long i need to continue that medicine? Have i become inactive carrier? Have i lost ability to pass the virus to others? Am i in Chronic stage means good?

Ref.. to the last quries.. I would like add that i am planning to have operation on Galbladder to remove stone that i have. Should i avoid any medication during and after operation due my hepatitis B

Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes please continue your treatment no matter what...

It seems as though your infection is under excellent control, but since you are still eAg positive, you need to stay on treatment - otherwise you will relapse.

i am positive
Hepatitis A
