My mother has been diagnosed with Hep B.  She wanted me to ask you guys if she would always test postivite.  Her dr. told her (long story short) that she has Hep. B and it would run it's course and she would be immuned to it However, damage was done to her liver.  So anyone that can accurately answer my quest. please reply.
Thank you

Hi, Bible.  It sounds as though your mom contracted hep B, but that her immune system is (or has been) combatting it.  In this case, yes--your mom would test positive for hep B, as she would have the antibodies for it.  She could not get it again, nor could she give it to anyone.  This is GREAT news!  This happened to me with hep B, though hep C became chronic active.

My sister also had hep B that her body built up an immunity to. It was so long ago I'm not sure if she still tests positive for it. But I think the liver does recover from it.
There is always hope!
