Response from Dr. Daar
Thank you for your post.
The answer to your questions is complex and really does require additional information. If you have access to combination therapy and have not been on such treatment in the past it is entirely possible that you could start a new regimen, achieve undetectable levels of HIV in your blood and experience a marked increase in CD4 cells. If this happens, which it often does in the setting I describe, you could live for decades.
