My maternal uncle (age 53 yrs), whome I love so much... has been tested +ve in 1997, but I came to know about it just few days before.
I am not aware about his CD4 count or viral load. He stays in a small village in India and under treatment of the doctors of Government Hospital and takes medicines for HIV (subsidised by government) prescribed by them.
Last month he was hospitalised due to severe fever and weakness and dignosed with Intestinal TB. He also has chronic piles. He has also lost cosiderable weight (50%). Being a small farmer in underdeveloped villege in India he is not able to maintain a healthy lifestyle but his children are helping him as much as they can.
So now he is HIV+ from almost 13 years and has Tuberculosis (TB) & Piles also [from this i think that he must have developed AIDS, but i have not seen reports)........ I want to know his life expectancy from this point of time.
Please guide me about this, I love this person too much..... I have spent happy time in childhood with him..... so have to plan few things now.
