I'm fit, over 40, in good health but hiv+. I am looking my age now and want to undergo cosmetic surgery in Bulgaria to regain some of my youthfulness, but I am not sure if I need to disclose my status there. I feel I should but I am worried I will be turned away. Anyone know how I stand in this matter? Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
I am 48 and have AIDS and I think you should tell them,they may find out threw blood work and then what?? So tell them and if they refuse you then maybe thats the way it is supposed to be...find a place in California or America somewhere. A friend of mine had work done to look better in his face in San Fransisco,California a few years ago. Good Luck.
I think you are right Homer. I feel ethically uneasy about not disclosing my status to anyone and as you said, I could be found out anyway through a pre-op blood test. That worries me from a legal perspective too, but another problem I have is a fiscal one - not a lot of money! Bulgaria is the best option for me, but I seriously wonder if any doctor would take my case on. What is a man to do?! I thank you for your thoughts on this Homer, and all the best to you x
