Response from Dr. Young
It's very good to hear from you again; I'm very happy to hear about your results- it certainly appears that all is well, two years after your very serious AIDS diagnosis and complications.
I do think that you can remain on your current medications for a very long time-- many years, no doubt, so long as you're able to stay up with the adherence. I've got many patients, just like you who once had AIDS complications and remain on medications without evidence of treatment failure or drug resistance.
Best of health to you, BY
ER Nurse With Splash to Eyes
