My father

Oct 14, 2017

My father has full blown aids I'm wondering how long will he have with me and grandkids this is important that I know under neath his eyes and cheek bone are purple and black he has a really bad smell at the mouth like sores and an infection he's loosing weight and lossed some of his vision he's not on treatment hev lost his most of his memory he's gets depressed badly and anxious quickly also confusion. How long do you doctors have left he's in jail as of now and they just got him on medication two days will the medication help at all.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

These are always difficult questions to answer without examining the patient and knowing what all the laboratory results are and what all the underlying active medical problems might be. If his doctors have started HIV treatment then they must think HIV treatment is going to be helpful for him.
