Hey Josh,
That is a delightfully low viral load!  ;D

I hope your CD4 results are high. Please let us know the results.

HUGS,

Good viral load (low).  I can't remember your whole story, so I might not necessarily act even if the cd4's suggest taking action if you are otherwise feeling ok.  As guys have posted in another thread on labs, we all look for a longterm pattern of how things look rather than reacting or overreacting based on one set.  Yes, talk things over with your doctor.  Yes, think about it for yourself as well.  Best, Win

well i just got my CD4's back....Not as high as i want it (i want 100000000 of them lol) but 309 ....not sure whether the dr will reccomend meds yet since my viral load is low (1907)...

Since i did the blood test for a screening they did a genotype test and im not resistant to any drugs which is a good thing :-D

anyways hope everyone else is doing well

Hey Puertorico2006,

It is good to hear from you. It is also good to hear that your numbers are where they are as well as the results of your resistence test. Take care of you!



Happy Holidays!

Josh, if this is your first test, I would pretty much guarantee that you will have at least two more before any action requiring meds will be done...   Your docs need a few more snapshots before any chance of meds being px'd.  Did they give you your percentages??  cd4/cd8?

I didn't get the percentages. I forgot to ask :-S lol but i just got those lab results over the phone so i guess my next appointment (i have to call tomorrow and make it) i will ask him. I do feel somewhat relieved though that the numbers arent too bad though. Hopefully next lab result will be better hehehe (trying to be optimistic)

:-D

Josh, try and enjoy the "season",  let the docs do what they do...   Breath and step back knowing that you are in good hands and they will take care of ya.......   The next time you go to the docs, have a list of questions you want to ask on paper.   Most of all, keep talking and telling us how you are coming along on all fronts....   Your a good man...

Love
