Good news that you are feeling healthy. Most patients who start an effective HIV regimen when feeling healthy, even with a starting CD4 count of 94, generally remain healthy as their HIV level drops to less the detection limit (typically < 50 copies/ml) over the first months on treatment. The recovery of CD4 cells is more variable but again most patients in your situation will see an increase in their CD4 count to >> 200 (out of the "AIDS" range) with increasing protection against AIDS defining and other HIV-related complications.
