Thanks for the response. "R" in doc F's office set everything up. Doc F wanted me to do IV's since last summer, but I kept putting it off. I was on orals for about 8 months, off and on. I am so much better than I was before, but I still have several neuro symptoms that the orals didn't seem to touch. Actually, Doc F gave me the scripts last September, but I never acted on them. I think I was dreading what I am actually experiencing now.
When I contacted the office again earlier this month and spoke to Regina, they just faxed over updated scripts to CVS. They never said anything about home care. I guess I should be held responsible because I guess I should have investigated this a little further as to what is involved. Now I have these meds which I am afraid to infuse because I have no one to follow up with for the dressing.
I am upset now to find out that I could be getting my meds from the home care place. I not only have to infuse 3 times a day, but I have to mix the stuff as well. I had one quick lesson yesterday at Doc F's office and it wasn't even with her PA. I had a nurse, I don't know her name, who was very nice, but seemed that she was a little busy to have to do a demo. She kind of went thru it very fast.
I was hoping to have the PA or R do it for me. I drove 1 1/2 hours to get a quick infusion and a demo. I am not even sure what needle I am supposed to use for the Heparin infusion. They didn't give me any additional needles, this is just a mess. I will be trying to contact R tomorrow. I hope that I can get the home care at least for the month. Maybe after that, I can get the regular set up from home care. I don't think my insurance will pay another couple thousand bucks for more antibiotics from another
