I have recently tested posative for hiv. I am only 18 and was infected a year or 2 ago. I wanna know if its possible that i can live to old age if i follow my doctors orders and keep up with my treatments.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Is it possible? As they say in the movie "Fargo," "Ya, you betcha!" Working closely with an HIV specialist is absolutely essential. Learn as much as you can about HIV and the various treatment options. This website and related links are excellent sources of information.
Ive been positive since 1991. I plan to die of old age and so should you!
