I'm so sorry for what you have been through!! You most likely still have an active infection going on, as even 28 days of IV therapy isn't enough for these complex infections. Also, if you have one or more of the many co-infections, the Lyme will not completely heal.
If you haven't already, please read through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread, as it's full of important information, helpful links, articles and even symptom lists to help you figure out which infections you likely have.
Going back to an Infectious Disease doc won't do you any good though. They don't believe, despite overwhelming scientific evidence, that these infections require more than 28 days of treatment. You will need to see a doc that has been trained by the ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) standards.
Here are several ways that you can find a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor):
