I'm already WOOO HOOO'ing thank you Robert (Bob)
Jun 2, 2009

hello Bob

I have read so meny posts from you that I consider you a friend, i just recived your answer and i'm very thankfull you could take a little time as I know you are very bussy

your comments were better than any post stress treatment, if you know what i mean, i'm feeling better already

sorry for my english as it is my 2nd language, I lived in San Diego, CA back in 1985 for two years (as a student) and one of my sisters lived in San francisco 5 years ago, so i got to visit you beatifull city very often

thanks again, and hope you do well

manuel

posting my last post for you to remenber who i am

can i woo hoo!!!! please tell me yes!!!! May 30, 2009

hello Robert, i really like your posts, you make people feel good, hope you can answer this question since i have not seen any similar in the archives anyway i'm a male & had a risk contact back on july 08 with a woman i didnt know HIV status, unprotected intercurse for a 5-7 minutes the rest using a condom anyway i didnt put to much atention to that one night stand until last january since i was feeling ok in the mean time i went through surgery, around mid september and after 3 months i wasnt feeling well (from surgery) I told my doc about that incident and he ask for HIV test

the HIV test came out NEGATIVE (Elisa & P24 i dont know what generation)

I have a couple of questions

1. after 6 months from risk contact, is this a true NEGATIVE, should i test again ??

2. would surgery affect in anyway the production of antibodys, since i was under a period of antibiotics and therefore increase the window for test??

i have been kind of paranoic the last couple of months even with a NEGATIVE test. i'm not sleeping well and every single ache or symptom i think is hiv related

i know i'm being over stressed and want to have a piece of mind

thanks for your comments

Hi,

1. Your HIV test is a true negative. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted.

2. No, absolutely not.

I agree you are "paranoic" and "overstressed." Consider talking with your doctor about your stress and anxiety problems. Effective treatment is available.

Dr. Bob

Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
