HBV +surface antigen reactive shows you have a hbv infection.

Not sure but iirr, neg  -HBe Ag means hbv is not active or transmittable to others, and you are currently in a carrier state.
I am 100% not sure about this -HBe Ag, this hbv is new to me. Best to discuss with your DR.
Also to confuse the matter;
"there are some types (strains) of HBV that do not make e-antigen; these are especially common in the Middle East and Asia. In areas where these strains of HBV are common, testing for HBeAg is not very useful."

Check out the HBV forum.
Here is the welcome page. It offers a good explanation of the different test results.
