Pos to Neg?
Jan 8, 2005
My father has had HIV for ten years from a blood transfusion. He is sixty-three. He has taken just about every HIV medication known. Recently, after two tests, his doctor told him he is no longer positive for HIV. Is this possible? He doesn't seem that healthy. I know he has chronic fatigue syndrome. Should he continue taken his meds? Will he continue to get his disability? His doctor seemed vague on answering these questions. "Yes and no" is not a clear answer. I have been HIV for over 15 years. I contracted it from gay lovemaking. I am very healthy. Is it possible if he has converted from positive to negative, that genetically there is a chance for me?

The devil is the details of this story. He would be the first.
