im so surprised and confussed at the same time
« on: September 15, 2006, 01:58:49 PM »
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 do.next 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 yet.im hoping that if my numbers are high enough,that we may try to get the hep c out of the way.so when i get the results i will tell all the people here.im 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

Sweetpea,

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

Hello Alive,

Looks to me that your doing just fine.
I hope the visit to the ortho goes well for you and your knee starts to respond to treatment. Keep us informed of your biopsy as soon as you know something.

You play ice hockey? My kind of man! I am a big Red Wings fan, me & hubby go to at least 10 games per season.

Have a great weekend!

Hello Alive2,

It is good news to hear that everything is going in the right direction. I am hoping that your knee responds to it's treatment as well. Keep up the good work on your health.



Have the BEST Day!
