My latest Lab Results
« on: January 09, 2007, 10:32:18 PM »
Well i took my first lab work 11/28/2006 and it came back CD4 309 and VL in the 1900's

then i saw the DR and mentioned i ended up sick for about a month right after taking the labs...so he said that i should take another set of labs...It turns out i had CMV cytomeglovirus which is similar to mono.... i didnt feel like working out for about a month and felt like complete crap (but still went to work and didnt call in sick)

i did another set of labs not feeling 100% and i came back CD4 339 and viral load in the 1400's...

Im glad when i saw the DR today he didnt want to start treatment yet...another 2 months drug free sounds good to me :-D....hopefully i wont have any infections next lab work and ill come back even better

just thought id share...hope everyone is doing well and all healthy :-D

oh yea i also got my HEPA vaccine and HEP-B vaccine (for the 2nd series i did one when i was 18)

Glad you are feeling better and that the labs are making sense.  I hope, given my own feeling about this, that you will listen to your doctor but will also think about how you want to approach treatment so that if you want to go ahead and he doesn't or is reluctant, you will feel comfortable negotiating.  Best, Win

Great to hear your progress.  One thing that struck me--you know how to keep on keeping on.  Boy is that ever a great thing to have  going for you!

Best,  Rick

And woo-hoo WOW to that torso.  ;) 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
