Hello Verry, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Fatigue is a symptom that is very often found in people with hepatitis. The liver is one of the largest energy-producing organs in the human body. Therefore it is very natural that when there is interference with this organ, a person will feel weak and become tired easily.
Hepatitis B virus is a virus that attacks the liver and causes damage to these organs. Even though your hepatitis B infection is now gone, the damage to your liver will take longer to heal completely. The liver is an organ that has a high regenerative ability, so if there is damage to this organ, the damage can be repaired. However, the process of repairing and healing this organ takes time, so the symptoms you are currently feeling are normal symptoms in the healing process.
Some things you can do to overcome your fatigue and weakness symptoms:
Get enough sleep and rest, sleep at least 8-9 hours a night
drink a sufficient amount, at least 2-3 liters a day
eat sufficient amounts of nutritious food, consume more fruit and colorful vegetables
exercise regularly, at least 30-40 minutes a day
consumption of caffeine in sufficient amounts (not excessive), but avoid caffeine consumption at night
In your case, it is better if family members who have close contact with you (especially your sexual partner) see a doctor to check for hepatitis B infection as well.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
