How have you been? Are you still on the Rocephin? Did this round seem to help at all? Hope you are doing better.
I just finished 10 weeks of Rocephin. I'm a mess. My LLDr. has prescribed Levaquin and Rifampin... but I haven't started it yet.... because I'm such a mess still. He said, "You will get worse." Last Thursday I had a pelvic untrasound (I'm bloated gained 20 and then lost 10 in 10 weeks), a chest X-ray and a mammogram and then I went in for my 2nd to last dose of Rocephin. I had blown a vein, then she missed a vein, and on the 3rd try it was inserted into my left arm inside the elbow. After my evening dose, I pulled the last line out and I just started crying and completely "lost it".
I'm a mess. I'm so tired of being in pain. I don't know if I can take "getting worse", and I'm really tired of sucking it up.
