Good News... PCR/CD4/CD8 results!!
      #230244 - 09/01/07 10:11 AM

At, 18 days post exposure:

PCR = Undetectable (or as one of my HIV specialist said, NEGATIVE).
CD4: 476 (kind of low, but my HIV specialist says that is normal)
CD8: 494 (OK)
CD4/CD8 %: 27% (He says is OK).

Well, I just got my resutls and saw one of my doctors afterwards.It seems to be that your mind can play many tricks on you, I had so many symptoms, like 20 of them. Everything was so real, and I was so afraid... I just want to thank all of you again, I want to thank GOD for a second chance, and I guess thats pretty much it.

And Survivor, I will follow your advice "collect your negative result and move on" Believe me, I will...

Special thanks to, Chris (hey man, thanks a lot for the support), Survivor (one more time), Neveragain, Miamilat...

I'll stick around and help in anyway I can...
Good luck to you all and God Bless you all!!!

PS: To those of you that have a ton of symptoms, symptoms = do not equal disease... I had like 20 something symptoms.. and I can say that is was due to stress... I just cant believe it... SAYONARA!!

Yaaaay! Good news!
For your own peace of mind, you may want to get an antibody test at 12/ 13 wks. It will also be NEG and you can put this behind you...
