Thanks everyone! I'm still trying to find a doctor who can help me get the port or picc line.....my primary care doctor won't do it. She referred me to an infectious disease person who said they don't do Lyme and they sent me to another one who also won't do it. So I'm waiting to see my hepatologist, rheumy, and neurologist, hoping that one of THEM will be nice and help me get a port. 'Cause I don't want to have to fly up to Northern CA (where my LLMD is, I'm in SoCal) to get the port installed.
Bucci, I'm supposed to get tested soon for the heavy metal thing....they're sending me several kits in the mail and one of them is a hair test kit so it must be for heavy metal....?
Thanks again for your responses....if anyone wants to answer springsjean on how long does one IV dose take, I'm interested too!
