cant get a satesfying answer
Im 33 yrs old male who tested hbsag positive in 2006. i dont know when and how i got it

At that time ( 2006 ) the test result was

hbsag positive
hbsab negative
hbeag negative
hbeab positive
hbvdna by pcr undetectable

the doctor ( who is a specialist ) told me that no treatment needed since I was an inactive carrier.
I had no treatment whatsoever.

I had not done any follow up tests until 2013 and that test came different , hbsag came negative , but hbsab was also negative

( 2013 result )
hbsag negative
hbsab negative    2.5 u/ml
hbeag negative
hbeab positive
hbvdna by pcr undetectable

I have recently done another follow up test ( last June 2015) and the result came different as well. This time my hbsab is positive with a titer of 17.2 u/ml



hbsag negative
hbsab negative    17.2 u/ml
hbeag negative
hbeab positive
hbvdna by pcr undetectable

my doctor suspected super infection and to rule that out he ordered agroup of tests and they came as follows:

hcvab   negative
hiv combo ab & ag  negative

liver status

gpt/alt   36   u/l
got/ast  21 u/l

note: I've never been asked to test for hbcab , j don’t know why.

Now my question is
Does my recent result indicate a recovery?
If so, do I have to tell future partner about my past illness?
What about the low hbsab titer?
