Strange results, need help
New here, but he goes

I had an environmental encounter with possible tainted blood  3 months ago and I have been very concerned. I had an A vaccine but don't think I ever had a B.

At 1 month I was neg for Hbsag
At 2 months it took an Internet lab and was found reactive for Hbsag ( only test done)
When I got that result I went to my PCP and did a full spectrum (5 days after the + result), it was Neg for HBsag, neg for hbcab but pos for hbsab <3.10. dNA was undetectable quant ( range was 20 and above)

After this I got a B shot and waited 2 weeks

I was scared still so i went to a Gastro and she repeated the studies and got neg HBsag again , hbsab was below 10. ( not reported unless above on this test), waiting on 2nd DNA still

So anyone know what's going one here? What should I do?

I should also mention that my labs are normal

AST 24
ALT 41
Bil .7

Still waiting on Hb DNA and ultrasound of liver

Any idea why HBsAG would be positive and then negative 5 days later with no other markers? Lab mixup? Could I have cleared it that fast?

Any help would be much appreciated

Had fibroscan due to fatty liver today

3.8kpa, which Dr K said was excellent
Dr also said my positive HBSAG was a false positive

Very good news, but I am overweight and need to keep losing and watch alcohol intake
