how long did it take him to test poz ?
      #122043 - 12/08/04 11:12 PM

from the ask the doctors archives



I had symptoms of fatigue and fever between July 6-9 of 2004. I have been recently diagnosed HIV+. I took a standard test July 15, 2004 and my result was (-) negative. After 2 weeks (July 28, 2004) I retested for another standard test and results came out (+) positive on western blot test. My diagnosis has been verified and am positive now. Should I start treatment? My first cd4 count was 520 and viral load of 32054. My doctor suggested he would put me in treatment for combination of TRUVADA & SUSTIVA for about a year to see how my body responds. He said since am newly infected, there are results from study that going into treatment would be beneficial. I am concern if this advisable. I had + tb skin test too and will be in preventive medication too. My doctor took another bloodwork to confirm #s and I will be back next week to get results and prescrition for the HIV & TB treatment. Wouldnt taking the treatment stress up my body? Should I go under TRUVADA+SUSTIVA treatment? Would it be more beneficial? I am slightly overweight right not and have slightly high blood pressure (140/90). I want to shape up before going under treatment. Thank you for the advice. Thanks for the help.

when was his first negative test after infection? He gives details about dates regarding symptoms, but not date of infection.

The poster does not specify when his exposure was so there is no way to determine how long it took. We can determine that it took about two weeks upon the arrival of ARS to test positive.

can someone tell the point of this question?

1) symptoms mean nothing

2) 98 - 99% of poeple who will test POZ will do so by day 42

3) everyone else by day 84

4) Use condoms

"jake the flake go fuck yourself people here are asking questions "

the answer to the question was supplied - he done't know the date of infection so you can't tell how long it took him to convert.
