HBCAB mean you either had been infected by the virus and cleared it on your own or you are clear of the virus by a past vaccination.. in either case you are free and immune tot he virus. you wont have it dont worry

as for postive hbea, not sure if this is a matter of concern in your case

stop worrying and enjoy your life.. in a healthy manner ofcourse
