Doctor has also prescribe me to take the rest of 6 week other wise my bone will collapse. So plz suggest, i m too afraid.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

It's not clear from you post exactly what the problem is- arthritis? a fracture?

It might be good to ask if you're having issues related to your bone mineral density (such as osteoporosis), as these are common among people living with HIV.

I'd suggest speaking to your doctor about what the underlying problem is, and if there is a way to prevent this from happening to other joints (or bones) in the future.

Be well, BY
