: I have Hepatitus B, I wonder if I am gonna die? Whats the chance I have of dying! Please respond!!


Kevin,

Do not desperate. According to CDC (Center for disease control):

"The case-fatality rate for reported acute cases in the United States is approximately 0.5%-1%. Most acute HBV infections in adults result in complete recovery with clearance of HBsAg from the blood and the production of anti-HBs designating immunity from future infection..."

According to the above, with proper medical care, you have a good chance of complete recovery. Please see your physician as soon as possible, if you have not yet done so.

John
