Neglected to Post New Numbers
« on: October 05, 2008, 03:45:18 PM »
I neglected to post my new numbers a  month ago, not sure why. But reading all the helpful
posts on these forums made me realize that there is comfort in hearing other people's progress.

Not sure of percentages but the basics are:

CD4 135   VL  371

As you can see from the signature, it's definitely progress. Minor side effect of fatigue, but that's no
suprise given how many powerful meds I'm on.  The molluscum  is still getting me down, but I'm slowly
having that treated bits at a time. 

My best to all of you,

Scott

Hi Scott

Great to hear that you are doing so well -- that's a good Tcell response.  Sorry to hear about the fatigue (and I know from the molluscum!) but it's really important to keep soldiering on at this point.  It really can get better over time.

You might want to start tracking CD4 percent now too (when you could number the Tcells that was probably less of an issue ;)).

Thanks for letting us know you are making progress-- it's cheering.

hi scott....

your numbers keep getting better and better and in such a short period of time.  As you can see, HAART is really something, isn't it?  I can imagine the relief you're feeling.  Soon you'll be up over 200 and undetectable.

As Assurbanipal says,  you might want to keep track of the percentage.  A great place to do this is the Graph Your Labs section here at Aidsmeds. It's a great tool.  I use it everytime I get my blood drawn.

Thank you all for the support and I will definitely look at the "graph your labs" section.
I wasn't even aware of it.

You guys are great.
