First of all, WELCOME to the forum! I am very sorry to hear that your son is becoming so desperately ill. I know that you are not new to Lyme, but I would still suggest that take a look at the thread on the top of the thread column on the left hand side of your screen: "New to Lyme....Start here". it has a lot of great information that is necessary to know for anybody that has Lyme. You came to the right place for support, and I want you to feel free to ask questions of our friendly members!
Could I ask you to give a little more information? Is ABX treatment the only kind of treatment that your son has been receiving? I would think that if a treatment is to be effective, that it would have been at least a little effective by 3 years!
A doctor that may be renowned in prescribing ABX treatment isn't necessarily the best doctor for your son. He may have no or very little knowledge of other approaches that may be best for your son. I knew within a few days that our daughter's last doctor would have the healing approach that was the one that we were looking for. If every ABX combo approach has already been tried, at least in my thinking, I would look for a completely different approach.
Another issue is detoxing. What does your son's detoxing regimen consist of? Diet? There are many related issues to becoming well. Please excuse my intrusive questioning, but that will give our members more to work with.
I am sorry for your situation, but I am glad you're here. I want to commend and encourage you, as i was also my daughter's chief advocate and researcher. I know what you are going through, although I did not wait as long to consider a treatment change.
P.S. Please do not give up! There is a solution for your son, but it will require you to be persistent, and to have an
open mind to approaches that you would never have considered previously.
We are older parents and Heather is our only child. She became so sick and debilitated that we thought that she was going to die, and everything looked so hopeless and bleak. However, God answered our prayers, and used the healing hands of Dr. J. at the Hansa Center to more than restore the health of our precious daughter. I have a moral obligation to help others that are likewise suffering!
