Is hep B completely curable?

I had hep B around 4-5 yrs ago. Dr told me plenty of bed rest, water and a healthy food would get rid of it, i was also having blood tests on regular basis. After about 5 mths i was told everything was fine and i could go back to a 'normal lifestyle'. Havent had any problems or symptoms, does this mean i dont have to worry about it anymore as i wanted to forget about that stage of my life. Im 24 wks pregnant and would hate to know im a carrier. I had all sorts of blood tests when i was planning on getting pregnant at the same clinic where i was first diagnosed and nothing was mentioned.

Hi,

Be relaxed. Nothing is going to happen. You just follow your doctor's instruction and follow up. If once positive your test will show positive always but that does not mean you will suffer from the problem. Just enjoy your pregnancy.
