Through my job, it seems I may have come in contact with the virus as such Dr. Has placed me on the HIV prophylactic for the next 28 days. Today is day 3 on the drugs and it has me feeling so nauseous.

I was nauseous before and now it's 1000 times worst. Not to mention how sick I feel.

Drained and unable to eat yet still on a stall?

Seems these stalls stick with you even closer than a brother.

I am hopeful you weren't infected. Is there something you can take for your nausea that is acceptable for your stomach but won't affect the efficacy of the medicine?

I hope you feel better soon.

I would be concerned if a doctor wanted to use a "prophylactic" on you (I know, technically the term is something that prevents disease, but the misspelling was funny) .

i am cancer free these past 15 year :rolleyes:

my left breast area had 2 nodes

after speaking in depth with doc pre-op

decided to have left breast removed

prophylactic at the same time right breast was removed

not understanding why having a "pill" (by doc) wouldn't/maybe be effective for not getting HIV??

not sure what else could be done to help the issue?

"similar" to doc giving "day after pill" after you've had intercourse (within 3 days) to prevent pregnancy

are these analogies ok to use at same time for HIV pill??

I AM NOT IN THE MEDICAL FIELD

(can't spell prophylat either :( (checked webster too)

"Through my job, it seems I may have come in contact with the virus as such Dr. Has placed me on the HIV prophylactic

i can't imagine the scary thoughts you are dealing with :(

possible contact with HIV, being nauseous, sick, drained"

hope things start to improve with nausea etc

sending good thoughts that the fear of having HIV is just that

a fear (understandable fear)

take care

good luck

I am very happy for you that you have been cancer free for 15 years and hope you remain so for the remainder of your long and healthy life.

I only made that remark based only on a "prophylactic" being a fancy term for a condom.

I would be really scared if my doctor approached me wearing a condom; mostly because I have a female PCP. :)

Thanks all for the good wishes and positive vibes.

It hasn't been easy but I trust in God He cares for me!

I believe it will be well with me. Taking these 28 days in strides.

One step at a time.

Happy to hear you are cancer free. God is indeed faithful!

Had myself a piece of pudding today and I actually liked it. Not a big piece maybe three table spoons worth. As my sister said; under the circumstances I have earned it.

One boiled egg, one Protein shake, two ounces of yogurt( yogurt really taste like crap today for some reason) and a piece of pudding is all I could keep down today. Plenty ice cold Water, in between.

Thanks all for the warm thoughts. Besides my sister there is really no one else in the family I want to burden with this issue so I am so happy I have you guys to talk to.

Thanks again

HIV PEP is known to cause a lot of nausea and unpleasant side effects. It's usually prescribed with zofran or another anti-nausea medication. Can you infectious disease specialist or surgeon get you a script for something to help while you finish out the course?

I work in the HIV field and medication is your best defense against contracting the virus. They do have side effects but a doctor should be able to treat that. Keeping you in my thoughts and don't miss any doses.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
