Let’s go back to the top of the thread….
Just so much and so hard to put it in order
With all this paranoia, I check myself numerous times a day. Meantime while I wait for my WB to return (received by WU on 12/15). Last night I noticed what looks more like a small cut around the area just below where I had the perianal abscess. I did not notice anything before the cut, no blister forming. As of now 16 hours from when I noticed it, there are no other signs of any blisters. All my questions are the following.
1. The perianal abscess which was surgically taken care of, could it have been caused by HSV? There was no anal contact during sex as it was heterosexual.
2. Could the new cut close to the perinatal zone be another herpes outbreak?
3. Seeing how I never tested positive for HSV1, but now I test in the 40+ range and then 26 range in subsequent test, can that be affecting the HSV2 reading giving it a low positive value (1.41 & 1.26)?
4. How much stock do I put in the negative supplemental with labcorp? And how much stock do I put in the subsequent HSV1 and HSV2 positive Type specific imunoblot with Labcorp?
UW received my sample on the 15th of December, these next 3 weeks are going to be unbearable.
Thank you for all you do Terry!!! You are an angel
