Response from Dr. Holodniy
I cannot comment on the immigration question. It appears you have arrested, but not eliminated the HBV infection, given that the HBV viral load is undetectable but the surface antigen test is still positive. You should consult with a liver specialist as to what additional treatment if any is appropriate.
