Thanks for checking in, seeker. I'm glad you're doing better. It's my understanding that your CD4 dont really start picking up until the viral load goes down. More important is your cd4cd8%. (what's yours?)You can see my numbers on my signature, my cd4's actually dropped after starting meds, but the doc said he viewed it as no change because I had just started the meds. My next numbers are coming in a couple months, just seen him a few days ago and he was'nt concerned about my numbers as they have been so far.
Take Care, keep up the progress!

As long as you're adherent and stay undetectable, the CD4s should start creeping up. It sounds like you're doing great ;)
