am 62. My HIV/AIDS wnent undiagnosed and untreated for 12 - 15 years. How much worse will this be for me given the fact the virus fesstered for more than a decade?

It is impossible to tell. Some people respond better than others no matter how early or late they start HIV medications. Starting at a higher CD4 cell count gives you a better chance at normalizing CD4 counts. But I have seen some people's CD4 cells go up from 0-10 to 1000 cells /ml !
