Response from Dr. Frascino
Yep, you've more than excluded HIV with your multiple negative HIV tests using various assay techniques out to 11 months. Work closely with a good internist to evaluate your bout of pancreatitis and subsequent ailments, most of which may well be a consequence of the potent antibiotics used to treat your pancreatitis.
