|cured Hep B now HIV
May 29, 2001
5 years ago I recovered (created antibodies) from Hepatitis B and was recently diagnosed with HIV. Will this cause Hep B to reoccur or will I have complications from the HIV medications? -Worried

If you developed antibodies for the surface antigen of hepatitis B you should have no problem.Sometimes this Ab is lost in HIV patients.
