What do you think about this result:

- HbeAg positive

- 1 year combo treatment Viread and interferon, time frame 2011-2012
- from 2012 to 2016 spring just Viread alone
- HbsAg quantitative in 2014 march around 25.000 UI/ml
- from 2016 spring to 2017 spring no treatment at all, I have stopped the antiviral treatment ( very strong flare alt and ast over 1500 units.
- from 2017 spring till present Entecavir 1 mg
- on 14 the of November 2017 HbsAg quantitative result 11.368,64 UI/ml

How come after 6 years of nucs you are still hbeAg positive and have detectable HBVDNA? and whi switch on entecavir after so many years of viread ?
You are F2 now, i've seen in a previous post, what was your fibrosis when you started taking nucs 6 years ago ?
Before any treatment in 2011 it was 6.8 kpa classified as fibrosis level between f0 to F1.

I don't think anything conclusive can be said about your HbsAg quantitative trend. These results go up and down. The fact that you stopped taking the medicine and had a strong flare might have caused your HbsAg to go a bit down (but thats not considered much).

Why were you switched from tenofovir to entecavir? Tenofovir wasn't working well or some other reason?
Switching to Entecavir was due to medical insurance reason.
