It is great news that you were cured of your hepatitis C.
It is unclear to me as to the status of your hepatitis B infection because you have not included your hepatitis B test results. However, you are on excellent medications for this infection - Truvada is one of my first choices since it contains two active agents against hepatitis B.
I think you should extremely well on this combination. Your HIV is in great shape too judging by your non detectable viral load and your T cell percentage is near normal. That is excellent.
Continue the great job with your alcohol abstinence as well. That is critically important for maintaining a healthy liver.
