im so surprised and confussed at the same time

(1/2) > >>

hello all my fellow people,i thought i would give all of you good people an update of whats been going on in my medical world.
i was at the docs yesterday and my cd4 is almost 600(599) vl undetectable ,and heres where the confussion comes in.last time my numbers were a little lower but still undetctable,but the % dropped from 26% to 23%,i know its not a significant drop but still it confusses me because everything else is going in the right direction and the %drops makes me worry im doing something wrong,but even the doc says hes not worried about it,so i guess i wont either.meds are doing the work they were desighned to stop ortho again,knee isnt taking to the steroids like they have hoped and now i have to consider opening it up to correct the acl.and finally asked the doc whats gong on with the biopsy results but he didnt have a answer hoping that if my numbers are high enough,that we may try to get the hep c out of the when i get the results i will tell all the people starting to feel very good about things again,and hope everyone here has good news every now and then,i know how it feels and its amazing how it can make a big difference just in attitude,i wish you all good health,take care

Don't fret too much. You really don't have to worry about that % unless it dips under 21.
