Dear this is the forum of Hep C (HCV). You have mentioned that your HBV is positive , that means you may have Hepatitis B which is different from HCV. There is community with the name of Hepatitis B. you can get information from there...
However, the severity of disease or even the presence of disease cannot be ensured through HBsAg report only.. As per my knowledge, presence of hep B virus can be confirmed through PCR test and the severity of disease (if any) can be determined through ultrasound of liver & Biopsy etc.
Consult with any Liver specialist/ or Gastrologist in your town, He can guide you better in this regard and join Hep B community where you can get answers of your questions & get knowledable info also
