Infected via cut likelihood
      #132721 - 01/09/05 09:32 PM

I accidentally stuck myself with a pair of scissors that were in the blood bank at work 9 weeks ago. The scissors had been sitting at room temperature for at least 12 hours without use and there was no visible blood on them. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but over the last few weeks have been consumed with the idea of having been infected with HIV. I'm sending in a Home access test tomorrow and was hoping to get an opinion on the likelihood of transmission of HIV under these circumstances. If I had said anything at the time, would anyone have even suggested PEP? Everyone says this is not a high risk exposure, but does that mean low risk or no risk? Thanks for any input you can give me. I hope to be able to Woo-Hoo is a few days!
