Patient :I did coke a few weeks ago using straws. I think we used out own straws but where we were drinking I can't be sure. However, I was later told one of the guys had Hiv and had a nose bleed but he cleaned it up and seemed very cautious.
I've been tested today and waiting for results but wanted to know the likelihood of infection of hiv and hep c. I was told the risk is low but am so worried.
