Welcome Shakeel,
Your post from the hep C forum was moved here because it's related to hep B. It sounds like you already know what the reports mean, since your doc has given you a diagnosis that is consistent with the report. Entecavir has been around a long time. A new drug is in the works (if approved, it will be announced), and many experts that like hep C, we will eventually cure hep B (3 to 5 years is one prediction I heard).

In the meantime, learn how to manage your cirrhosis, eat a healthy diet, and your doc should help you manage your condition. Once the news wears off, it will get easier to live life, and yes, enjoy it.
