Thanks for the advice. I hadn't thought of calling anyone outside of the doc's office. Yes, it was my internal med doc who undx'd me. In my initial visit with him he told me he was sure i'd be pos, but we were gonna go ahead and do the test anyway and go from there. He was basing that on the letter i got from United Blood Services. He said the final test to determine type was more accurate and therefore more reliable. Yes, i've wondered why the need to be retested, but assumed all was fine or they'd have said so. Of course that was before this last year of doc visits and tests galore. Also, I did read last night that within the first three months of infection the antibodies are there, but after that they aren't present and will give false neg test results. Did u know u can actually sell u'r blood during that three month time because u have the antibodies and the infection is so rare as to give need for them??? Anyway, thank u for u'r help. I'll be moving on this Monday morn.
