Hi Dee, thanks so much for that, I appreciate your kind words.  smile  People like yourself who have done such long stretches of tx have really been an inspiration to me.  You had a really rough time and were still prepared to carry on.  Did I read in one of your posts that you went down to 40 kilos??  Hope you`re feeling stronger now.

All the best to you, hugs, Jill xxx

Hi Mano, well it sounds good to me, although I believe our v l does fluctuate anyway. That is a huge drop though.  Yes, Brendan is the expert on bloods and in fact all aspects of tx. 

Good luck with your next appt.  Probably a good idea to make a list of all the questions you want to ask. 

Take care and let us know how you get on.

Hugs, Jill x

Not sure what it means for sure Mano, but it's good to hear ya sounding positive about matters. I think the viral load is known to fluctuate. Good luck with next week's appointment - and keep up the spirit.

Hi Mano,

That's a good thing. No wonder you haven't been feeling well you bony is battling. Not sure about your question, maybe Brendan will pop in to answer.

Hey guys.. my Dr. called me today with my new viral load. Apparently went from 1.300.000 to 700.000 so she says its half o what it was 2 weeks before..as you know im not on treatment yet.. just waiting to find out next week what the plan of action is..
does anyone know if this means anything?..
is it just my infection is calming down or is there still chances i clear it?!.. they say they need to see a 2log reduction that would mean less than 100.000 but maybe if I have another test since they were so close?
a lot of questions..
