I don't mind at all, but I'm not positive, because I think he said the test cost around $150(again..brain fog so I could be wrong), and I'm on Social Security disability due to the lyme/babesia(actually for depression/social phobia, but it is caused by the lyme/babesia + any other as yet undiscovered co-infections), and my llmd wanted me to send payment with it by credit card, as he wasn't sure if Medicare would cover it or not.
I couldn't afford the test the day I was in the office, so he told me we could do it next time. But if he was willing to do it that day, I was taking abx at the time which he knew(Ceftin, Zithromax, Diflucan for the lyme cyst form since I can't tolerate Flagyl, and Bicillin LA shots with the Mepron and Artemesia), and he didn't mention stopping abx for the next visit for the test either, so I'm guessing I didn't/wouldn't have to stop abx for the Fry test, but I can't say for sure. My doc may just not have thought about
it since I didn't actually get the test done that day.
And, plus he was pretty excited at all he had learned at the conference about
Heparin troches and the Bolouke enzyme product both dissolving the biofilms around the lyme, etc. He did Rx me the Heparin troches and is ordering me some Bolouke at his cost since I'm about
broke from this disease/s...retail is about
$95 and he said it would be about
$50 for me...just to break even for him on his cost.
Sorry I can't be of more help. He is currently trying to arrange a PICC line for I.V. therapy this week, so if I talk to him soon I'll TRY
to ask him about
the abx and the Fry test.
EDIT: make sure to see the other post on the next page with Fry's website and phone#
