a little nervous
      05/26/09 04:36 PM

Newly diagnosed. My numbers have been great from bloodwork. I've had two rounds of tests, my VL has been below 14,000 each time, and my CD4 has been around 650 the first time, and 764 most recently. These are good numbers, but I'm a bit torn over when to start medication. My initial instinct was to wait as long as I could. My doc says numbers are good, have a nice summer, we'll test again in September and see where you are at.

I'm just unsure now, and I am a little nervous that not getting on medications will result in more damage to my immune system. Anyone have any thoughts or experience that might be helpful for me?
