I understand your frustration about the situation.

But treatment of chronic infections like Hepatitis is still difficult with possibility of relapses in some cases, just like as in your case.

In such cases, there is no option, but to be pragmatic and use a wait and watch policy, and decision to treat or change the therapy or stop treatment entirely would be decided on case to case basis.

Hence you need to be strong and continue to work with your doctors.

I hope this helps.
