Scorpio, Thank you for your good wishes. No I had no lapse in treatment. When it got close to the end of the month, I called the insurance company and spoke to the person that sent the letter saying they would deny future treatment and told her that it was helping so much and begged her to please allow me to continue. I had to get a letter from my doctor saying that it was helping and I would benefit from more treatment. Thats how it went for 3 months. They absolutely denied the fourth and I paid myself. I could have put myself in more debt and continued but felt it was time to go off because I wasn't sure it was working and because it was so expensive.
It wasn't until a few weeks after stopping the IV that I realized it really made me feel better and many symptoms were leaving, but I felt pretty bad while on it---not everyone does it is an individual thing. If I had the right doctor at the time who knew enough to give me meds after I stopped I would probably be even better than I am now. Many of my babesia symptoms began to return and I ended up going to another LLMD paying another 750.00 consultation fee and that is who I am with now. I am OK with him, and I think after 2 years of treatment the babesia is under control. He is in the movie Under Our Skin, Dr. H in Hyde Park, N.Y. Have you seen the movie? If not I have an extra copy I could send to you. My email is on my profile. Hope this answers your questions. Blessings
