Hi Frank!

I understand that you are eager to know your status and that waiting to know for sure that you're ok may be causing you considerable anguish. Nevertheless, at the risk of sounding cruel, I cannot pretend that "some indication" is good enough. Although the probability of conversion having taken place is high, and your last test consequently being accurate, you'll need to test again at three months to know for sure and that test will either turn out positive or negative.

So hope maybe, but no certainty. Hang in there!

Keep strong!
