saying goodbye too soon
Jul 6, 2005

Typically how long would a 59 year old man with asymptomatic AIDS with pneumonia have left to live?

Also suffers with fever, night sweats, rash, and tumors. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Conway

This all depends on your CD4 count. As long as it is above 200, your risk of dying over the next few years is very low. If it is, in fact, lower than this, you can help yourself by going on antiretrovirals to increase it and being on appropriate medications to prevent opportunistic infections.

Do I really need norvir?
