Maybe I came across differently than I meant to. I am grateful that I have insurance that allows me to have the doctors that I have, why my gripe is,
I’ve been on so much medicine for the last 5 years really longer but heavy duty stuff last 5, that will this round of IV anti-biotic’s do anything for me. With
My symptoms being the ones that occur in both Fibro and Lymes how does he know putting me on such a strong dose of IV won’t do more harm than good?
Hi hopegirl. I am sorry you were disappointed with your appointment.
Which doctor did you see (initials only)? Did he say he would only treat for 30 days total? Have you been tested for the co-infections? Which test results did you have with you?
If it is the doctor I think it may be, I would get another opinion.
I saw Dr S,
He had me sign some papers for the PICC line stuff, then he said he wanted to do this then he would be doing general CBC? blood testing every week or every other too make sure nothing is getting messed up with the antibiotic. He looked at my tests that I brought with me which was the western blot run. No other test was requested, which was why I was a little confused because I thought he would want to check for the co-infections. He also said that with my insurance if I need longer that 30 days, he could probably get them to ok it because of all the symptoms that I have. I guess he is okay, I was really tired, in alot of pain, pissy that I had to come back to work...etc.
I am waiting for the assistant to call me with a date to see about getting the PICC line put in at the hospital.
Was this the doctor that you thought?
