Hep B antibody will show up on an antibody test within 2 months.  A neg after 3 months means you are home free.

hep B is a serious liver disease though not nearly as serious as hep C.  I believe about 90% of patients with hep b clear it on their own or with treatment.

If you are pos for hep B, SEE YOUR DOCTOR!  He can certainly advise you much better than I.

However, be thankful you have hep b and not hep c, which is VERY serious.

Do not delay on seeing your doctor.
