dear docs, a couple of questions 1 )is it possible to have hiv related neuropathy only 10 months after infection? and if does this necessarily mean a low cd4 count? 2)is it problematic to have an eye laser treatment, when hiv+?
Response from Dr. Wohl
It is possible to have neuropathy due to HIV itself. It does not necessarily indicate a low Cd4 cell count.
I see no problem with laser eye surgery in HIV+ people. I would tell your ophthomologist abot your HIV.
