It's time for my good news...
« on: July 03, 2007, 08:45:36 AM »
I found out my hiv+ status 3 months ago..

So... 28/03/07 -> 197 CD4,  22,000 vl
       18/04/07  -> 227 CD4, 13,000 vl
       11/05/07 start taking Kaletra & truvada (no side effect at all)

I just took my test result after 1 month on meds... 19/06/07  test -> 275 CD4 , 157 vl
Also all the other blood tests results were perfect.

I think something start working good on me...  ;)

Congrats on those improved numbers.  That VL will be under 50 by the next test I'd bet.

Glad to hear the regimen is causing no sides too.

Good news like that is always welcome Giorgio.

Keep up what you're doing. Like RAB said, I bet that viral load continues to drop.

Thats great news..
I just changed from Combivir to Truvada and iam already on Kaletra.......Iam hoping my t cells go up
My viral load has been undetectable for 2 yrs now..Iam on the same meds as you know..I switched to Truvada
because of my skinnylegs arms and fat belly.

I was told by my dr. that getting off combivir and getting on truvada would help my physical appearance.
He said it cant be reversed, but it would help taper those nasty looking side effects to stop.. I hope so.
Great news is always a pleasure in this forum..........
