serostim vs. megestrol
Oct 15, 2006

Hi

Wanted to just thank you for your advice. I had a meeting with my brother in laws doctors. We have called in an endrocronoligist. His primary care was not familiar with the use of hgh or testosterone for that matter. Its amazing that if you don't have a patient advocate you may well end up without proper care. You would think i would not be amazed at this point considering i've had to go through this with mother and friends with cancer. I know this is off topic but there needs to be a fight for better quality care for aids patients. My brother in law although had complications not due primarily to aids has had difficulty finding a proper facility to meet his needs here in NYC and LA. The sad part he would be doing so much better but he had a GI tube misplaced in his stomach that gave him peritonitis,and almost killed him. He is a person of means, and has been reduced for settling for only the most basic of care. This has opened my eyes to the healthcare system. If someone who has great insurance, and has money can only get the most basic care what does it say for those who have nobody, and no money. There are only a few limited places that are equipped to handle aids patients, and this is driven by insurance companys

Response from Dr. Wohl

He is fortunate to have you as his advocate. Best of luck.
