My Hep B Panel has come back unconclusive twice and now I have to be retested for the third time. Is this common? They are retesting the HB surface Ag, Anti-HB core & Anti-HB surface to calrify serological pattern. I am hep B surface antigen negative, hep B core antibody reactive. Can someone help me make sense of this?

welcome kymom:)
I was told by my dr that surface antigens mean you have active hep b,,hep antibodys mean that your body has built up a resistence to hep b,so its NOT active,youve just been exposed to it at some point in time and your body fought it off on its own. I dont know about serological patterns,,Id suggest you talk over this with your dr ,and wait til all the tests are in and conclusive. Let us know what happens and hopefully everything will turn out normal for you. take care
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
