Oppourtunist infection
Nov 9, 2004

Hello, Thanks so much for this sight.I know this may be a question you can't really answer for sure, but my brothers tcells are 37. He was taking Steteva and something else but became very suicidal, he quit. But he has a number of problems, thrust, swollen neck, very fatigued all the normal symptoms. If he ends up with an infection like lymphoma at his tcell count, is there any hope???? Thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

There is hope yet many patients have a hard time taking certain HIV meds but there often is some combination that is better tolerated. Sometimes it is a trial and error process. He needs to connect regularly with his HIV specialist. KH
