How long were you receving IV treatments via the PICC line?
Even though I'm infected and I was having neurological symptoms, the neuro problems are mostly gone and I think I feel normal. I had to edit this post to add that my joint swelling is gone, my knees no longer hurt when climbing stairs and my severe sun allergy has seemed to disappear.
I've been on rocephin for 4 months, Zithromax since mid-November and Flagyl for 20 days. My doctor says the IV can come out in about a month.
I do still get electrical shocks in my toes and fingers that make my body jerk and these I worry about.
How do you know when you are better? This was expensive and now that I have reached my cap with insurance, I am no longer paying out of pocket. I don't want the IV to come out, only to have to put it in again and pay all over.
