I don't think your interpretation about your HBeAb result is necessary correct. Generally, for antigen, if it is below a reference level, then is is non-reactive. But this is not necessary true for antibody test. It is complicated, so your Lab should provide the interpretation.
HBsAg is just a protein, it is non-infectious and it cannot kill you. Its quantity in the blood gives a clue to the degree of infection in your liver. As I said before, what does high and low mean depends on other information.
So it seems you are HbeAb positive. This usually means you are in immune control (disease is inactive) phase. This should be confirmed by your viral load and ALT. If you are indeed in the immune control phase, you will not be very infectious to others. But you are still chronic. So get your viral load and ALT measured.
Hepatitis B is a chronic disease, so it is highly unlikely that you will die immediately - chronic means long time. But it does mean you will need to monitor your disease, and to treat when it is necessary.
I am going to repeat just one more time. You need VIRAL LOAD(HBVDNA) AND ALT TESTED.
Read carefully. Whether you are in the immune control phase needs to be confirmed by your viral load and ALT. No need to repeat the other tests.
You may stay in the immune control phase for a long time or you may transit to the immune escape (your virus is active again due to mutations) phase. We don't know. That is why, you will need regular check up. Go to see a liver specialist and be looked after by him/her.
Tests 3 LFT (liver function test, this will include ALT), 6 AFP (a marker for liver cancer), and 7 HBVDNA seem reasonable to me. Depending on the results from these 3 tests, the other tests may be considered. You have to ask your doctor why all these tests are needed.
I really think you should take one step at a time. HbsAg level is just of one of many factors to take into consideration in what treatment is appropriate.
So your liver functions panel is normal, including your ALT. So far so good. Now wait for your hbvdna result.I don't see any need for UGI ENDOSCOPY - this is looking down your throat to look for varices in patients with diagnosed cirrhosis.
