I know the normal range of the cd4 and that thing scared me. I want to know how long is gonna take my CD4 goes to the normal range. I know when i start treatment i was in a bad condition with a pneumonia carititis...

It can take 5 years for some people ...Cd4 cells fluctuate but what matters is the trend, not a single number. Also, ask your doctor to show you your CD4 percent to see how that is changing.
