Whores' Blossoms and Other Things
« on: July 10, 2007, 08:55:23 PM »
Dear Economy Class Passengers,

The electric telephone is a wonderful invention. This very morning, as Matty the Damned was finishing his breakfast mojito (the rum warms him in the winter amongst other places), he used it to call the galleon chested Frau Eva with a view to enquiring after his latest blood test results.

And as chance would have it (or maybe the clinic facsimile machine) they had arrived.

As always a little perspective is in order. My results from April this year:

VL: <40 therefore undetectable
CD4 absolute: 144
CD4 %: 12


The most recent (July):

VL: <40 therefore undetectable
CD4 absolute: 120
CD4%: Unknown (to be advised)


This means a couple of things. Firstly, the Frau and I agree that even in the absence of a percentage the CD4 result indicates no real change. Coupled with a second consecutive undetectable VL this means I can finally jettison the hateful AZT component of my regimen!

Fuck off Trizivir, welcome Kivexa!

In other news, I'm antibody positive for Herpes Simplex Virus Types 1 and 2 and now officially have the butt-herpes. Also, my cholesterol is a bit high at 5.8 and my triglycerides are WAY high at 5.5.

Whilst talking to the Frau, I took the opportunity to ask after Nervous Indian Student. Some of you may recall he had something of a baptism of fire in that dark font I like to call my bunghole.

MtD: Oh I was wondering, how is NIS doing?
Eva: Ever since last Monday he's been considering pursuing gynaecology as a specialty.
MtD: No doubt. Has he asked after me?
Eva: Not really. When ever we mention you, he starts to sweat and has to sit down.


No sinew at all these young doctors. Where do they find them?

Toodles!

My Dearest Matty,

I thought I would respond before twisting one up since your health is of great concern to me. I am sorry to hear about your butt herpes. What does Frau have in mind? Is there any remedy or relief to be had? Congrats on giving the azt the boot and moving on to what must be better meds.

As far as the NIS goes, I think it's funny as hell that he now wants to be a gyn. And I told you that they would have conversations about you after that last appointment...Stop scaring the staff, man.... ;D


Fondly,
Queenie

Great news Matty, but my stomach is hurting from laughing about the NIH student. You're a trip. How's the B/P is it coming down? HSV 1 and 2. You were always one to go all the way.  ;)

Yairs, poor old NIS. Who would have thought that Matty the Damned's Dark Hole was so much scarier than the Black Hole of Calcutta?

The BP still sucks horribly. Todays reading stands at 159/117. Substantially lower though. I'll chase up a permanent solution with my GP Lady Jane next week. As for the whores' blossoms, I have some Valtrex on standby for that and Lady Jane will issue an authority prescription should I need one.

It's nice that my mangina is such a conversation starter (or stopper, as the case may be) not just here in Boolaboolabongbong, but all over the world.

Dear Matty,
I was pleased to see that your BP had dropped to a more liveable level.

I was also pleased that NIS hasn't given up medicine altogether - just male patients!

Good luck over there from Tassie

Matty, congrats on moving off Trizivir. 

Hope el herpo doesn't visit often. 

BTW.... cholesterol medication can have some pretty vile side effects, should Die Frau decide to put you on it.  If you suddenly feel like you have seroconversion sickness all over again, feel week, and every muscle in your body aches... let her know and get off of it.

As always, dear Matty, you bring a certain charm to us from above whenever you post about your health. You'll have to forgive the torrents of laughter you may hear from down here. You've officially got the butt flowers, eh? There's a couple of options for those. You can have perky Frau lavish your love canal with liquid fire, there's a couple of prescriptions such as Aldara that you can apply yourself, or there's always the loving surgeon who will most graciously ream you a new one - literally.

I do have one question about the NIS though. I've often wondered if the same holds true for GYNs and Proctologists that holds true for other professions.

Phone operators don't like talking on the phone when they get off work.
Computer Techs don't like working on computers when they get off work.

Ergo, if it does, it must suck to be the GYNs (male) and Proctologist's (gay male) partner because if they are looking at them all day, why would they want to look at their partner's when they get home?

Best regards, oh beloved beacon of light

Hey Matty:
  Glad your BP came down some, but it definitely needs to be lower.  I do hope that your doc can find the right medicine to bring it down.  Congrats on your viral load.  I hope the new medicine works out for you.  That was fuckin' hilarious about the NIS.  Now, see what you caused him to do-  switch over to women!  :D :D   I do hope your bunghole feels better soon!

Dearest Matty,

Type 1 and 2, plus a great bounty of whore's blossoms. Well, I always knew you never did anything half-assed.  ;D

As for the NIS,  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Keep an eye on the blood pressure and, as our Puck stated, if you begin taking a statin and start feeling nasty, call Frau Eva or your other doc immediately. Been there, done that, ended up jumpstarting my PN.

Yep, they are still prescribing it. In fact, I'm still taking it. It is a very good drug if you can tolerate it, but can be a pain if you cannot.

Indeedy Comrade Mark!

AZT is an excellent drug and the fact that it's still used so commonly today when more modern anti-virals have lapsed into some level of disuse is a testament to it's efficacy.

Matty the Damned has only two problems with AZT:

  • It requires twice daily dosing and he is less the puritan in his adherence;
  • It gives him a terrible headache.

Otherwise he'd stay on the dratted stuff.
