I need my WOO - HOO

Nov 14, 2008

Hello Doctor,

Thank you for your counsel you have really been a great help.

I posted a question earlier for the PCR tests and you recommended an antiobody test at the three month mark. I took your advice...

until now i had done all the following tests:

1- 7th day PCR( HBs & HIV = negative 2- 26th day PCR (HIV) = negative 3- 70th day (antibody)= negative 4- 84th day (anitbody)HBs and HIV = negative 5- 91st day (antibody)= negative

Are these results conclusive? do i need to repeat the tests again?


Response from Dr. Frascino


I would consider your multiple negative tests conclusive and definitive. No additional testing is warranted. (Actually you've had far more than you need already!) It's WOO-HOO time!
