I have had 3 rounds of IV Rocephin. The last round was 10 weeks.... I kind of think I was getting better on it (for once!). I am now on oral Rifampin and Levaquin. I am slowly improving but I think it has more to do with finally getting a little pain relief. The pain meds seem to mask the LD somewhat.... but every morning it's still there..... I wake up and LD says, "Hello, I'm still here - haha - I have a hold on you whoooeee!"
