Jul 25, 2008
Hey Doc Bob. Just wanted to thank you for your help with my question "is hiv test still accurate ten years after an exposure." I went in to my doctors office and he agreed with your assesment that i would still be making anti-bodies if i had been infected. If my body had stopped making these anti-bodies he said i would most likely be very ill. He ran an elisa test that came back negative. Yay! I am going to make a donation in your name to our local aids orginization. Thanks and enjoy summer. I know i will. PS> please dont tell me to wear sun screen!!

Hey doc Bob. Thanks for your words of wisdom for my question regarding a tests accuracy after ten years. I majored in many things in college including "exposures" unfortunately. Well, I went into my docs office and he ran an "elisa" test that came back negative. Yay!! He agreed that if my body had stopped making antibodies i would know it cause i would be very sick. Thank you so much for your help. I am going to send a donation to our local aids charity in your name! Enjoy summer...

WOO-HOO and congratulations!
I'm glad your doctor agreed with my assessment. I think he will also agree with my subsequent advice as well: Wear sunscreen!!!!
