Good Day
You seem to be recovering from Hepatitis B. Not to worry for now. Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables to help in your stools. Drink plenty of water. Avoid fatty food for 2-3 weeks. Get your Hepatitis B tests done again after 2-3 weeks to see if the viral load has decreased. But anyways, it is not clinically significant. Liver biopsy not needed as of now. Relax. Eat healthy. Do mild exercise if you can. GOOD LUCK !!!!
