I am glad to hear that you are feeling better. It sounds like the Rocephin is working for you.

Kendal,

That is wonderful news! I love hearing these kinds of stories. It gives us so much hope.

I have a question for you. Why are you doing the shots instead of IV? I'm going to see a new doctor, hopefully soon, and need all the information I can get.

Thanks!

Kendal,

What is rocephin shot? I give myself 2 shots a week.

One is a cocktail of misc. meds the doctor has created he calls "Energy Special". I tis a combination of B12, AMP, Glutathione, NADH, Thymus, Methyl B12, Magnesium, Lidocaine.

The other is Immune Globulin.

Good for you that you are better!!!!!

LadyWLyme,

That is an interesting combination. I bet the Lidocaine helps with pain. I've never heard of it being given that way. It sounds like a good cocktail to me!

LadywLyme,
The Rocephin shot is a strong Antibiotic.

CajunGrl,

I can't say I know that the cocktail is working. It's thick so it hurts; hope it doing something! I want to be able to have a post like Kendal's!

Rocephin is an antibiotic usually given through IV. That's why I'm curious about the shot.

CajunGrl, i do the shots because i do maintenance work. and i'm running around all day. i've been winding down on the meds. and exceriseing more. I just bought a infrared sauna its coming tomorrow. its a 2 person one. i hope soon i can go off the meds for good. Also the rocephin shot is a IM shot it goes right in to the muscle.
