Welcome to the forum. I'm happy to confirm the accurate replies you had on the community forum.
You had a zero risk exposure; few if any HIV infections have ever been acquired by oral sex. More important, test results always overrule symptoms and exposure history. No matter how high the risk (as already noted, yours was low) and no matter how typical symptoms may be for a new HIV infecrtion (yours are not typical, despite what you think you have learned by online searching), the test results tell the truth. Your test results prove you don't have HIV. For more discussion of this, see the thread linked below (just two questions before your own).
If any symptoms continue or you otherwise remain concerned, see your doctor. But you need not worry at all about HIV.

Thank you Doctor. I just found it strange it happened 2 weeks following the incident. I never thought oral was a risk for HIV, until I started googling symptoms. Then I thought since the oral oraquick at-home test is 92% accurate with HIV positive results, I thought I could be in that 8%. I'm happy to know 85 days is conclusive. I'm hoping I could move on from this.
I read the constant lymph node swelling is a typical first sign of HIV. Is this true?
"I read the constant lymph node swelling is a typical first sign of HIV. Is this true?" No, especially with only a single enlarged node. HIV-related lymph node inflammation occurs in multiple areas of the body, and is always accompanied by fever and other symptoms. iBut as we have discussed, even if this were typical of HIV, the test results overrule it.
It's not one. It's on both sides of my groin. I have one swollen one on the right back side of my neck. Normally, do HIV swollen nodes hurt? Because these nodes are causing me pain.
HIV related lymphadenopathy generally is painless. But you should see a doctor about this. For sure it isn't HIV, and probably no other STD either -- although a blood test for syphilis might be wise.
Let me know the outcome after you have been professionally evaluated. I won't have any other comments or advice until then.
Ok, thank you Doctor, I will do that. I also want to mention that my groin feels so better after I urinate. I'm thinking it could be a UTI. I know you won't have any advice for me, but I just wanted to let you know.
Young healthy males rarely get UTIs, and in any case that would not cause groin pain or lymph node inflammation.
I would urge you to stop speculating (and to stop trying to figure it out by online searching) and rely on evaulation by a doctor or clinic.
