you need an antiviral or a hepB treatment to be cured (or at least managed), not a lab test

Not sure on that one. What does that one mean if it is positive when compared to the other two I listed already? Or negative compared to the other two already listed.

if you have HB surface antibody - positive you have gain also immunity, if is negative you have to made a vaccine to try to get this positive.

HB surface antigen negative - this is a clear sign that you are now cured, so congratulation!
