Thanks Stef2011, do you think I would benefit from interferon? Or should I leave it?

Nice result ! :) I guess your doctor won't advise interferon because you are typical inactive carrier and hcc risk is  comparable now to the person who cleared from chronic. I assume that you have F0 or F0/F1 max from Fibroscan ?
From the other side with such low HBsAg you've got decent chance to clear, so hard decision.
Hi Sorte, I'm in the US and to my knowledge there is no Fibroscan. I know I did the Fibrosure blood test and it was negative. Not sure how helpful that is. Also I just realized that you are Polish, me too. I'm planning to go to Poland for a few weeks in March. Right now I'm thinking whether I want to see some doctors there but with the result like that not sure what else they can suggest other than interferon.
Wrong. I live in us and I did fineosscan
None of my doctors offered this test to me.
Insurance will not cover it. You need to pay between 200 or 350 something like that. Tell your doctor
It is covered by some insurance if it is in network provider.

Just did my first fibroscan today in Poland. It came out at 3.3kPa
