Yahoo after 6 yrs.
« on: June 24, 2008, 08:51:41 AM »
I went to the doctors office yesterday, and got some great news.

My tcells are 521 and they haven't been that high in 6 years..They always hovered around 200 or less..

I am so glad I made the descion to change doctors..These people really care and even gave me the cellphone numbers.

They call my house to see if I am ok..Now how great is that..

My VL is undetectable, but it always was and I thank the doctors and god fro that,
but never in the 6 yrs of taking meds did I ever pass 301 and now my t cells are 521. ;D

Thanks to this forum and the help of some of you online here, you helped me change my meds, which in exchange, made my tcells rise...Thank you all for helping me out.

So glad I entered this forum or else I would be on the same meds that kept my tcells low for years...

So Hip Hip Hooray for ME. ;)
