Blood Drawn ..... results pending
      #18820 - 06/29/01 09:31 PM

Well, I went in to see the doc and had my blood drawn. He's an Infectious Disease specialist, and I saw him before about two months ago. Lat time, he said he was practically positive I had nothing to worry about after checking me out, and given the fact that I had a two month neg. Elisa and undect. viral load. This time, he checked me out and found some little "reactive" nodes (as he called them), but said that is NOTHING to worry about - he said if I had HIV, my nodes would be blown-up all over the place. He said that little nodes can be due to a tiny cut, etc. All in all, he said he wouldn't even reccommend another test ...... but he was going to do it in order to put my mind at ease. He actually ordered an Elisa (checking for HIV 1&2) and a PCR, measuring down to 10 copies. I asked him why he ordered the PCR, and he said he always orders both of them together. Anyhow ..... I see him back on the 9th of July - here's hoping ......
