Can this Affect my test result?

Dec 9, 2013

Doctor i went for a HIV ELSIA test at 3,6&9 months and during this time i never had sex(i.e for 9months)but my concern is i have a surgical rod in my arm from 5 years due to an accident,will this affect my Hiv test result in anyway?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Your surgical rod would not affect your test results in the slightest.

In health,
