Unfortunately it look that you are in a chronic phase, maybe you had alredy the infection 6 year ago.
Do you check tha antibody after the vaccine ?

Anyway, this has small importannce now, so I suggest you to perform following  tests:
- liver status by Fibroscan or biopsy (if Fibroscan is not available in you area biopsy is one of the alternative),
- HBsAg quantitative if is possible
- viral load (HVB DNA PCR)
- other liver related tests could help (ALT and AST and if is posible also ALKP  and Bilirubin and ... )

Base on this result a doctor should be able to advise you if treatment is recomanded or not.

As to your question you can live a long and good live, you only have to monitorise yourself and go under treatment if will be the case.

if HbsAg present and igm anti hbc non present is usualy indication of chronic, and also the monitorig window is 6 month. I don't know if your doctor want to make a monitorin in 6 monthor just to chek the igm anti hbc and see if it will declare chronic or not.
Anyway, as long as HBsAg is present you can be considered cured, but this not mean that you need treeatmant - for that to be sure more test are required.
btw do you knw you HBV DNA ? or the liver status ?
