Response from Dr. Henry

In our clinic we follow many entertainers/patients who sing in choirs do well with their HIV treatment so that they can continue their singing activities. The long term prognosis for HIV+ persons with good access to health care including antiretroviral medications is generally good with much variation depending on individual circumstances that can be discussed with your HIV provider.

no sexual urge
what about me when Dr Bob himself failed to fight! feeling so sorry for him.
