Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm sorry to hear about your son; his situation is not uncommon (unfortunately).

Full answers to your questions are probably beyond the range of this post, I'd encourage you to surf the forum (under HIV monitoring tests and natural history of HIV) as well as the hepatitis forum-- I'm sure that you'll be able to find the answers to your questions there.

Please write us back with any details, BY
