Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Vaccine is not required as you are already infected with hepatitis B

In inactive phase no medication is recommended.

What you need to day is regular follow up with Gastroenterologist. You require to get SGOT/SGPT every 3 monthly and HBVDNA every 6-12 monthly. Once they will be increased then you may be considered for treatment

It can be active in later years thats why you require regular follow up

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
