Well, I had my doctor appointment with the infectious disease specialist.
I loved the whole team. They were great. Very caring and sympathetic.
I had a ton of blood drawn, over 13 vials worth. They tested for everything under the sun.
I ended up having to wait quite a while to get my results back. Several weeks actually.
The results were good though:
- My CD4 count is 456
- My viral load is 2,077
- I'm not resistant to any meds
- My white count is high
- I'm vitamin D deficient
- The hepatitis C and A tests were negative
- I'm immune to hep B
My doctor does want to start me on meds. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I'm going to move forward and do what they say.
Overall, my counts and everything are A LOT better than I thought they would be. I'm very thankful for that.
My next appointment with him is March 2nd. I guess we will start the meds then.
I'll add more soon,
