Well what do you know it WAS a blip!
« on: January 08, 2007, 11:40:11 AM »
Well its good news for me this morning,

My doctor has confirmed my last VL jump from undetectable to 100 was a blip not the start of something more sinister.

My Vl is back down to undetectable.

I questioned my doctor about reservoirs in the body and asked if this could have been the reason for the slight jump.

He looked astonished that I'd even read up on the facts.

He asked me where i get my info and i told him www.aidsmeds.com !!!!

He's gonna visit the site this week,

Another Member Hooray!!

Love to all

from the UK x

Good news!

Sorry about the cricket though.  ;)

Jay
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

George Eliot, Middlemarch, final paragraph

Good timing.  We just had something else posting that he, too, has experienced what might be resistance or a blip.  Win

Excellent news and a good reminder to not just by a single set of results when a blip happens.

Even though being discouraged by a blip is certainly understandable.

Great to hear that Mindnight !!

I have had several times now , where the viral load has gone from undetectable, to a small reading. And glad to report it has always dropped back to undetectable again. Aas others mentioned, it would take several consecutive test to determine if a problem could possibly be developing.
