im in the uk so picc line is unheard of, 4 weeks is the only length of iv i can get as its rather over protective here about
damage and antibiotic resistance so lyme docs are very heartened to give out more. (in a row that is, not to say in 6 more months i might get another month ) im actually doing even better since i wrote that update, ive basically been able to look after my toddler, make the meals, im still having issues with symptoms, but they are reduced a lot. im VERY worried about
stopping the iv. my lyme doc wants me to stop all abx for TEN DAYS after i finish then he wants to pulse me with oral abx every ten days and continue like that. on the few occasions ive not had any abx im very poorly after 4 days, so im very scared about
that. he wants to put me on an abx ive also never tired called Zinnat. he showed me a chart and explained hes just had training on this subject and its a new thing he wants to try and was very excited about
it, he explained he will trick the lyme into growing then the abx will destroy some of the bacteria, and this process is repeated until symptom free. believe it or not pulsing in the uk is unheard of and this is the first lyme doc ive found who does it.
Aside from that he wants to focus on my EBV (mono virus) and close the book on lyme for a while. hes convinced that it will benefit me as he says i have a chronic and reactivated virus that could be causing a great deal of my symptoms and i may not recover until we look at it, but im super scared to do this. once you get one day with no major pain, returning to it is, more scary then i can express.
