Avatar f tn If he was taken to a hospital the same day this happened, they would assess his risk and start him on PEP for HIV if they decided he was, in fact, at risk. I am not a doctor and do not know what they would (or could) do for the possible Hep C exposure. I am sure if there IS something they could do, they would. I'm sorry this happened to your friend and we all wish him the best, but going to the hospital was the very best thing you could have done.

Avatar m tn I am a twenty-one year old male who is self diagnosing myself with HPV; I know it sounds incredibly arrogant, but please read on. I have developed 3 fairly small cauliflower shaped, grey growths on my scrotum; the pictures I have seen online look just like what I have. I have read enough, on this website and the national institute of health's, to understand that it's, as Dr. Hook put it in another blog, "a fact of life.
Avatar m tn Tell them that you are planning to use them for an upcoming treatment and ask them their experience with the specific medical plans you are weighing. They should be able to give you reliable information as to whether the treatment is covered or not. When you make the inquiry it is important that you refer to the precise names of the medications your doctor will be prescribing. Sometimes insurance companies have formularies that cover one form of a medication and not another.

Avatar f tn I am a 34yr old male, 160lbs. I contracted hiv in December of 2009, and got diagnosed formally in January of 2010. Started treatment immediately, with 60,000 viral load. I forget my original cd4 count. Up until a few months ago, I was on treatment pretty much the entire time I was infected. There were a couple breaks due to insurance issues, and one break last fall when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I'm told the diabetes is from the hiv medication.
405645 tn?1249701810 Like you I am a slow responder that had a low baseline VL. Like you I did not clear until week 24. Any length of this treatment is hard, but 72 weeks, well, I'm sure we all know. Going into it with a good "gotta get it done" attitude will help. I'm 30 weeks in to my 72 weeks and I really am starting to believe I can make it to the end. Good luck to you.
Avatar n tn It depends on what your pulmonologist will do with the result. If he "just wants to know" without offering treatment plans depending on the result of the cath, I probably would not do it. If he however has some treatment plans depending on the cath outcome, it might be worthwhile. I would advise you that you discuss with him your reluctance, and ask what he hopes to gain from the cath.
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
