I have no idea what tests they use in Malaysia, sounds like some sort of a rapid test. Anyway, I would be very surprised if you tested positive for HIV, that is very unlikely now. Your stiff neck could be a side effect of cipro, and hematuria does not suggest HIV at all. It suggests some sort of a kidney problem.
A neg result at almost 9 weeks is pretty reassuring....but of course you'll need to test at 12 weeks for a conclusive answer.
I'm sure it was scary....but the chances you got infected aren't as high as you may think...and I agree that the urinary issues are prolly completely isolated.
I am sorry to say, but that is a very scary situation.
I wish you the best of luck and I pray you will not be infected.
i am going for my 3 months test tomorrow.. wish me luck...
how conclusive will it be?
Good luck. You will be negative.
Wish you all the luck in this world. Got your results?
juz got my results.. it was negative(Elisa) at 13 wks... u cannot imagine the relief.. no words can describe it.. the doctor told me that i'm not out of the woods yet as theres still a minute(1%) chance i might still contract HIV.. and that only with 6mnths test can i really close the chapter.. but hey.. i'll take the odds..
btw to get an Elisa test here in Malaysia.. all the major labs ie Gribbles,Linklabs, Pathlabs charges roughly aroung USD 7.00...
This whole forum really helped me a lot during my 3mnths of hell... for that.. i owe all you guys my utmost gratitude..
may we lead a healthier lives and help everyone around us...
Awesome news mate! Wish you a great health. :)
tks man.. really feels like a 2nd chance in life.. abstinence is what i live by nowadays..
btw.. the gross hematuria was unrelated to HIV.. u guys were right.. did a CT scan and discovered stones in my kidney...
had them laser blasted 2 days ago.. took about 1.5 hrs on the laser machine...
i hope what i went through would help many people in the forum...
Really great news mate!
Having the same situation and waiting for my result now. this gave me a lot of hope and strenght! thanks mate
