Hi Bad, there are so many things to take into consideration for Hep B. First off, if it's an acute infection, it can take as long as 6 months to clear... sometimes a year (they have redefined this, but 6 months is typical). Stay under doctor's care up until then.
If you were immunized and had the series of 3 shots, you should not have gotten this but there is some talk that the immunization lasts as little as 10 years but as much as a lifetime. Of course, it is POSSIBLE that you were born with an inactive virus as well, meaning you were a healthy carrier and even though you were immunized, that will not help as it does not get rid of the virus so the immunization was useless. It's also possible that you inactive virus, went active.. pretty much like me. Your GI specialist should order an HBV panel to determine if the virus is active in your system (if it's increasing, then it's active)
There is also a chance that your doctor saw Hepatitis B in you, from the immunization. After all, you're being injected with the dead virus. That being said, this is probably the best site I can give you to help you understand based on your results:

Hope this helps!
