I know a lot of you all want me to wait for the new drugs, but VL is still extremely low, 41k to be exact. My doctors are more than certain that I will clear the virus since the levels are low, but they really want me to wait for newer treatments. This is probably the bravest move that I will make this year, but I have never went wrong when my gut has told me to do something.

I just wanted to update you guys and hope to have your support.

Best of outcomes with this.  I'm sure more will chime in with (more) support.

Indeed, best of outcomes, and nice to know if round 1/old drugs are no good there's round 2/new drugs still on the table.
