Hi lillimul- I hope the Rocephin works well for your husband. It might take some time but I am sure he will have positive progress with it. My doctor here in NH called John and recomended that I go back on Rocephin because I was not having any luck with the zithro/doxy combo. So John called me at ten in the evening-I was actually in bed and wanted me to try mino/zithro first. I just said to John that I would but so far none of the orals I have ever been on done anything. He said he wanted to discuss it with Dr. H when he came back from the conference in SF.
So I have an appt. Nov 14th with John and I hope they will agree. I will have the PICC or Port put in here in NH if I can go back on. Tell your husband to hang in and he will feel better. The fatigue is disabling for me at times too. Each day is different and I never know how bad it will be. It makes it very hard to work. My sleep is okay. I take lunesta with melatonin and sometimes a benadryl. I am sleeping good right now but that could change quickly. My doctor here gave me a prescription for Rozerem but I haven't tried it yet.
I am glad to hear you are doing better. John has me on malarone even though I didn't test positive for Babs. I have been on for almost a year. I just had all the co-infections retested to see if the Bart is gone away. Maybe if you are feeling lots better you could go on herbals for a while just to make sure. I tell you if it wasn't for my chronic fatigue I would be doing pretty good.
I will let you know how things go at the appt. Yours doesn't happen to be on the 14th does it? Mine is at two thirty with John.
Take care and keep in touch!
