Response from Dr. Frascino


I'm assuming the "cervical vaccination" is Guardasil. If so, yes, it is indeed recommended.

As for your additional five negative HIV tests, the results are of course to be expected, because you are HIV negative. Whether or not you choose to believe this, you can't change the reality of the situation!

As for what's going on? I cannot diagnose conditions over the Internet. One thing that's persisting that I can diagnose is your perseveration on a disease (HIV) that you do not have! (Hence the 5 additional HIV tests.)

As for Lynette, she gets through her chemo just fine and then continues to have lots of adventures with the other gals on Wisteria Lane.

Be well. Stop worrying!
