I am fearful of the syringe!!!
      #205005 - 08/26/06 03:36 AM

I took the rapid test and it came back negative after 08 weeks... But I am very worried, since I am fearful of seeing the syringe, so i turned away when the doc began to draw blood from my vein...

I am afraid that the doc forgot to change the syringe. I am sure that the time left for me in the room was about 02 minutes, so, if the doc forgot to change the syringe, 02 minutes are enough for the virus to die, IS there anycase like me documented,,,?
PLS help me!

What you are saying is complete nonsense!!!! Nobody reuses needles or syringes in this day and age in a hospital or clinic setting!!!!! All medical professionals use universal precautions to prevent the spread of blood born disease. This includes disposal of all used needles into a specially marked container. Basically, you had absolutely no risk of HIV from this.

Hey, dont want to add fear to you , Id like to comfort you because i had similar fears at a health clinic. Its horrible to feel that way but the odds are against your query. you are fine. Just walk back in with confidence, we cannot control what others do.
