RESULTS IN - picking them up Monday
      #26197 - 01/02/02 11:58 AM

I called the clinic and they are having me in Monday for the results, I wanted to go in sooner but they said they were booked???? I doubt this would be the case if I were neg.

My lymph nodes are still swollen and painfull in multiple locations and have been for the past 2 months and my head is pounding( from the nodes on the back of my scalp and behind my ears)and I still have a faint red rash on the tip of my penis.

Thanks to everyone who has given me hope that I may test neg (this is how I got thru xmas) but I have come to accept the fact that I have to deal with this now.

Good luck, (seems to me they would want you in ASAP if you were positive.)

It's very rare that a clinic would ever give out results over the phone. Please don't assume that the fact that they want you to come in means your positive.

They have to deal with confidentiality issues and the best way is to make sure that the person picking up the results is right infront of them. Anyone could be on the phone.

Let us know what happends.

My thoughts and prayers are wtih you at this time. Although I confronted you on some of your postings regarding honesty, etc., I totally understand your fear, my friend. Hang in there, and remember, ARS does not hang around this long - it hits hard and then leaves.

it may be good news for you that they do not want you to come in ASAP as was the case with me and others that i have met ,we turned out to be + which is why they wanted us to come in asap i think in your case this should give you hope especially given your low risk ,,,,,,,peace ALT

Because I have asked, a clinic will typically have you come in right away if something is wrong with your results .... in your case this means that THEY would not have delayed you coming in for the results!

Second, from experience and those I've talked to, most clinics require you to come in REGARDLESS! Why you ask? Well very simple .... they don't want you NOT coming in if your + ... and if the case was that only + people were required to come in then this would very likely turn out to happen! Therefore, they require you to come in either way!

I've read your symptoms and you're right ... you got em' all! But every indication based on your clinic's reluctance to have you come in right away ... points in favor of a negative result!

In the meantime, have a couple beers and relax
