If you are in the US/EU, there is no chance that you got HIV from blood transfusion.  Blood gets carefully screened for HIV prior to transfusions.

Hi there,

Yap, you need to get it of of you chest and also get HIV out of your mind......

I recommend you speak to a doctor instead of trying to find answer thru internet.
