In brief: Probably

If you are now well nourished, this answer is a qualified yes.
However if you have since contracted HIV or TB or have suffered irreversible liver damage , the answer may be different. Good luck to your path to recovery.

In brief: Yes, in some cases

Depends on the drug, depends on the immune deficiency.
In many cases recovery is possible, but it may take years.
