Thanks for your question Xavier. I recently tried a clinical trial using a drug for cardiovascular
purposes of my heart and valves and so forth...... to determine whether long-term HIV has any effect on your heart. Unfortunately I could not take the side effect and I had to stop the trial in the middle but the doctor did say that numerous patients did have enlarged hearts and clogged arteries. That's something I have noticed also it seems that a lot of us suffer from some type of bone density problem.

i just had a triple bypass emergency bypass, not caused by a heart attack. the high triglycerides (not very high cholesterol, on meds) caused this. i’ve had angina from this almost 20 years of the 23 year diagnosis.
two years ago, a quadruple fusions on my back. no strengthening or meds could avoid this. equine something syndrome, horrible!
but i’m good-enough from all of this, what’s next? maybe nothing.
oh! i had blood cancer three years ago treat also, at Mayo, i was lucky to have them notice what everyone hear in so flo never saw in 20 cbcs..
that’s good now too!
