My lab results came back today on my hepatitis B Viral Load follow-up tests... and, it's gone down. Considerably. From 100,000 copies at four weeks ago to less than 20 copies. I couldn't be more thrilled about this development.

woohoo.JPGThis means I won't have to add Truvada to my current regimen of Prezista/Norvir. It also means that my mom's hunch was right- the spike in my hepatitis B viral load must have been related to all of the blood product treatments I received in August. My doctor was taken aback by the results, and I was mentally prepared for the worst... there's been so much bad news lately, today was desperately needed.

So, cheers to turning points. This is most certainly one for me. If you're out there and struggling with medical shit- my heart goes out to you. And godspeed on reaching your own turning point.... hang in there.

Positively Yours,
Shawn
