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