Hi to all

I have swollen lymph nodes around my neck after 1.5 year after infection and after 3 months on ART. I just want to ask all of you, according to your experience, do you think is it normal to have swollen lymph nodes after such a long period?

They went smaller soon after I started with ART, but they are still there. I'm a little worried..

Thanks in advance

My lymph nides didn't entirely settle down until four years or so after my diagnosis and going on meds. But you should ask your doctor if you are worried. My doctor at the time didn't seem to be.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
