check up and new numbers WBC count low
« on: November 20, 2008, 04:14:43 PM »
Hey everyone,  I had my check up, it has been 14 months since starting on Atripla with a chaser of Bactrim every other day.  The Dr. Ran a second blood screen as my white blood cel count was low.  it was 2.7.  on second test- about 3 weeks later came back WBC was 3.5.  My nurse sister in law said that 9 or higher would be good.  I have not had a cold in I don't know how long.  I go through periods of extreme tiredness and wonder if the WBC has anything to do with it.
Hemoglobin is good.  Other than that, I feel okay.  The Dr. said she might go three more months and maybe try a "stronger medication"  whatever that means.  My viral load is undetectable for last 9 months- YEAH!!!  cd4 will not go over 200.  bumped up to 226 once but then went back down to 198.
SO-  I am not letting this get to me, but anybody else that has gone through this have any advice?  I want like hell to get my CD4 up.
P. S. I got my flu shot yesterday,  everyone should get theres, please!
Cheers, mates
