What has your doctor recommended. My suggestion is to follow your doctors advice. They are medical experts and know your complete medical picture. We here are patients and as such cannot offer any medical advice. These online forums are more for support for those undergoing treatment or dwindling with a medical condition to offer our individual experiences and moral support. Your own experience with treatment will likely be different from what others have experienced.

If your doctor recommends treatment I urge you to follow your doctors expert medical advice.

You surely do not want to develop chronic liver disease with the associated effects of liver disease including reduced quality of life and shortened life expectancy.

For medical guidance ask your own personal physician especially a doctor experienced in treating a patient with hepatitis B
