Tuesday is the big day
« on: September 23, 2006, 07:34:17 AM »


I get my next lab results this Tuesday - this will be my 3rd set of numbers since being diagnosed this past February 2006.

I went undetectable in June on Sustiva/Truvada and expect my CD4 and percent to increase.

I'll post my results once I get them.

Biggest complaint for me is fatigue, but other than that I've been managing and just looking forward to the cool fall colors here in Michigan.

I am sure you'll be pleased with your results. These meds do a good job!

We are going up north the 3rd week in October to check out the fall colors, I always to forward to Fall, but don't really like what comes after.

Take care....see you next week when I get home.

Jordan,  Don't sweat it... Let next week come when it comes.   As many say do not suffer in silence related to the fatigue.  Let your doctor know what you are experiencing/feeling.   

Love

Hello Jordan,

I also think that you will do great on your next set of numbers. Make sure to mention the fatigue issues with the doctor, see if any other tests may be necessary. Enjoy the change of seasons.... I wish we could get a break down here in Florida !! I will be sending good thoughts your way.

Hi Jordan, it is Eldon.

It is always good to hear from a fellow member of the forums. Don't fret it as much. Your numbers should come in looking good as the meds DO work as Nadine has mentioned. Also, fatigue is an ongoing issue as well and when you see your Doctor, bring the subject back up with them so that you can address this issue.

Other than that, I am sending positive vibes your way in Michigan. Take care of yourself and start a multi-vitamin if you are not already doing so.


Have the BEST Day!
