Omg I got the chronic kidney disease caused by the HIV meds


The first kidney stones happened in 2012, then it happened again on the other kidney around the same year, I was on Truvada Norvir and Reyataz for 12 years,  I never missed a dose.
 Then it happened again last month on September 16th 2020,
I have found that Hell on earth does exist in the surgical recovery rooms, I have heard the terrifying screams of young men and old alike in pain for hours and hours, I have not found a way to release the screams out of my mind, I have  seen angels that give comfort to the suffering, I dont know how they can handle so much suffering, one has to be a very passionate person to be around all that pain every day and night,   I have also seen the Miracles giving as a gift to the physicians that heal the wounds, I have seen Heaven on earth.     


 Hi Floridartist .

         I hope you are not on these drugs anymore !

      I ALMOST DIED OF KIDNEY FAILURE , on these drugs .

 My VA doctor did nothing !

 If not for an intern I would be dead !   

          Please let me know how you are doing .

                                                           Be well , Carl

Kidney  stones have been around for millennia.  What makes you think yours are related to HIV medications?

I have kidney stones . they removed one that got stuck between my kidney and bladder. they tested it and told me it was made up of my HIV medication.  I was on Norvir Reyataz and Sustiva.  I still have kidney stones many years later .
