In brief: Sometimes

If lyme is treated early (within days of being infected) it is relatively easy to fully eradicate.
The longer it has been present before treating, the more difficult to eliminate. With good treatment most of those with lyme will eventually become symptom-free, but it is possible that many may still have the borrelia bacteria present in the dormant cyst stage. There is no test to prove a full cure.
