Chronic hepatitis b - need advise on treatment

Dear forum members, i was detected with chronic hepatitis b in april 2012 during a minor surgery. At that time my Hbsag quant was 237iU/ml. Alt was 60. Liver ultrasound normal. No pain in stomach and no yellowish urine. In december 2012, i had the test again, hbsag quant was 1572iU/ml. Alt was 42. Fibroscan was normal. liver ultrasound showed fat liver and coarse echotexture. Doctor has not advised any medication to me as of now. But i constantly feel a pain on right side of my stomach, it feels like a swelling. Urine is slightly yellowish all the time. Doctor is saying that it is due to gas and fat liver but i am feeling this symptoms for first time in my life and really worried if my treatment is on right path. During this period i had alcohol only 4-5 times, but recently when i had a small amount of alcohol, i had a severe irritation on right side of stomach next day. I am really worried, please advise.

my ultrasound report showed fat liver, gas, coarse echotexture. Fibroscan report came out to be normal. Bu tthis pain is feels more like a bruise inside my stomach on right side...is it possible that hep b might have damaged my liver to end stage in one year and tests might hav missed it? would you suggest any other test after ultrasound and fibroscan?
