This is a hard one but he would say yes and having come so far, despite my misgivings of still being on abx, the answer is most likely YES.
Here is a brief update. Still going well for him. JC started testing him monthly for his myco after the last appt. and moved him back to a 3 week on/1 week off schedule (he had done 3 wks off/2 weeks on prior). His test last month for myco was negative for the first time in 3 years! We were told to stay on the heavier abx for a few months to make sure it really knocks it out. If his tests are still negative when he goes back at the end of Feb, he will probably start maintenance which is 3 wks off/1 wk on. JC has found that most kids can do 1 yr of maintenance and then go off but some kids and many adults require up to 2 years of maintenance.
I hope I can convince DS who at that point will be an HS senior to do some maintenance herbs but he is SO tired of this I don't know how that will work.
Let me know what you think.
