Hubbys New Numbers!!!!!
« on: July 11, 2007, 11:40:45 PM »
Hey everyone,

I just wanted to give everyone an update my hubby is now taking Norvir, Reyataz, and Epzicon. After being on the meds for two weeks his test results were great!!! his CD4 went from 150 up to 188 I know its small but it was only after two weeks on meds. Now for the great improvement his VL went from 500,0000 down to 4,367!!!! I am very excited to find what the labs come back that they took today. He has been on his meds for a month now and so far so good. He has had some VERY mild diaherra (like once a day) a little yellowing in his eyes but nothing noticible unless you are staring at him looking for it. I am very happy with the results so far. I just wanted to share it with all of you. Thank you all again for all your support. ;)

What a timely response.  I was thinking about you, and your hubby over the last couple of days, and wondered how he was doing on the meds.  I had decided to send you a private message on that very subject, buy you beat me to the punch.

I'm glad to hear the diarrhea isn't too bad.  I was a little worried about that, as Ritonavir and I aren't exactly good friends.  Happy to hear he is tolerating it well.

Congratulations to both you, and your mate.  I sure that the numbers that are supposed to go up, will continue to rise, and the ones you want to go down will tumble even further.

Thank you everyone. I am very excited on how well he is doing. The doc said she would call me in two weeks when she gets the new results back I will post those when I get them.
