Hi All, I apologize for being away from the forum fo so long and hope everyone is doing well and making progress on their journey to getting well.
It's been a real struggle and I've not made as much progress as the doctors hoped for but I'm still holding out hope. Thank goodness my wonderful doc has not given up on me yet. lol
I'm posting today to share some good news I just received that I hope is a sign things are changing in the medical community and with the insurance companies. Anyway, I was just approved for another month of iv meds and in-home nursing. I've been on IV Rocephin (and many other meds and supplements) since March with a few short breaks here and there. Last week my doc submitted an order for IV Doxycycline and unbelievably the insurance company approved 4 weeks, after covering 6 months of IV Rocephin.
In addition to not feeling well enough, I also have not been posting because I don't want my situation to deter someone else from going the IV route. I know it's sometimes a very hard decision to make but I am still a big advocate for giving it a try in more difficult/stubborn cases. There are so many cases where it has worked wonders when everything else failed. Just keep in mind that usually the longer you wait, the longer it will take to see improvement. My case is definitely not typical but I still have faith that one day all the meds, supplements, diet, etc. will kick in and I will see big improvements.
It's sometimes difficult for me to post or answer questions, so please be patient with me.
I miss all of you and will try harder to visit here more often. Even though I haven't been on the forum recently, you all have been in my thoughts and prayers.
