Is it possible that a person who gets a tick bite, gets the bull's eye rash, and is never given any treatment, that they have a possibility of long-term/chronic infection?
Is it possible that this person may only show one positive band on a Lyme test?
Is it possible that this one band may only be band 41? Or only band 31?
The answer to all of the above is "Yes." Here's why:
When the immune system is beaten down, such as from long-term chronic infection (of any kind, not just Lyme does this), it is less able to generate antibodies. Therefore, it is entirely possible for someone to only have band 31, or only have band 41, or only have band 39, or only have band whatever, be the only positive band, and yet still have an active Lyme infection. The reason I say this is because of reading information in the books, "Cure Unknown" and "Ending Denial" as well as other sources (yes, they are all scientifically documented).
