I think you can do nothing because your liver is ok  and alt is low.
Are you Hbeag-?

You know the guidelines do not even conceder hbsag quantity as an indication for treatment.
You can lower hbsAg by iterferon, but being hbe- high hbsag and normal alt, good response is  unlikely.

Maybe you should monitor and if a flare occurs start a therapy.

what is your stage of fibrosis? Did you check your liver by fibroscan? Maybe it is not hbv causing you pain around liver area?

you need to get rid of fatty liver, it makes similar if not worst damage than hbv...the pain could have been from fatty liver too

fibroscan?

with hbsag so high it is best to try a sequantial treatment:
tenofovir 3 years (or entecavir)
interferon add on 2 years

and then according to the hbsag levels all drugs can be stopped or antiviral kept until hbsag clearance

hbsag is likli to et in the range 10-300iu/ml after 72weeks of tenofovir+intf and at those levels the virus is on immune control most of the cases
