Response from Dr. Frascino
The trio of HIV, hepatitis C and leishmaniasis can be very challenging to manage. Unfortunately I have no way of knowing how severe your partner's three illnesses are. However, I have no doubt he is feeling terrible. My advice is that you not go "berzerk." That won't help your partner. Instead I suggest you accompany him to his visits to his HIV/AIDS specialist and ask how you can be most supportive to him during this difficult time.
Good luck to you both. Give your partner a hug from me, OK?
