Jan 19, 2000

I stopped all treatment due to lipodystrophy. It has now been eight months since I stopped. In that time my abdominal area has lost some of its fat accumulation and I have had a return of most of the fat in the buttocks. As of yet I have not seen any return of fat to my stick like arms and legs. I am beggining to fear that I have permanantly been deformed. I now wish that I had deferred treatment until I really needed it.

Response from Dr. Fisher

Keep checking those numbers so you can be ahead of any progression and get back on treatment. Alvan Fisher, M.D.
