I think you said you were going to Jemsek for 15 months now. Did they do any tests for lyme and did you actually have anything show up or did they just treat on symptoms. I'm concerned about that 15 month time frame and it sounds like your not totally back to 100%. I don't have any insurance and the figures I'm getting thrown at me on costs are horrendous. My son was told at Jemsek that it could be a 9-15 month protocol and likely back to 100% in 2 years. What is your outlook from Jemsek of when you will be through with their program and back to 100%?
I had already been tested and had a positive IgM WB from Igenex.
I am not symptom free yet.
I also treated prior to dr j with a LLND for over 2 years. This may have made the Babesia more resistant.
I am on a maintence protocol which dr j said it could be for 2-3 years.
But the cost is dramatically reduced as I only have appts twice a year now and abx are taken for 4 days per month only.
I am not 100% yet - but dr J is optimistic that I will be if I stay on the program.
I think 9-15 months to be 100% is very optimistic - lol
I think 15 months and then a maintenance protocol after is a reasonable estimate.
The appt costs aren’t so expensive after the first few.
We can’t really predict how long it will take for you everyone’s case is different.
Some people are treating for +5 years...
