Sounds like your doctor is saying your body is fighting off the HepB virus by itself and your should help your immune system do its clearing job.

Which country are you in?  Did your lab result give range values for COV, PV etc.?

do you think i still have it?

You said 1 year ago you were positive and now you are still positive with HepBsAg.  This would mean you have chronic HepB.

can i work?

Most people with HepB work.  Depends on the nature of your job.  Is it invasive?

will i be deported or just declined to work?

Depends on the laws of your residing country and the knowledge on HepB of your prospective employer.

Hope the above helps.

We try our best to help you.

You are doing the right things to take care of your liver.  You are right if you were adult when you were exposed to HepB you have a good chance to clear HepB and be immune for life.  When you have your next test results look for hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) result.  If it is positive then you are cleared.

Best wishes
