I think we probably use the wrong wording in how av's work, we say that they stop them reactivating which i dont think is correct. I think they can still reactivate but antivirals stop them from replicating. So even though numbers are high there reactivating and trying to replicate and hopefully the famvir stops this replication process, this eventually lowers the viral load. It seems that they have woken up thats all. I think this is why we can still crash on antivirals as the viruses can still reactivate and cause us some grief but the longer we are on them the less grief they cause us. It took a full 2 years to get my cd8 t-cells down to normal range, are they lower at all compared to previous tests??Its a good thing your feeling better, run with that for now. cheers!!!
