YES! I got an appt with LLMD!

Well, I decided that I am not waiting around for my primary care to believe me, and I am not going to search forever where I live to find someone to treat me when Dr. Cameron is only about 3 hours away...I called and got an appointment for Monday

I can't wait!

Re: YES! I got an appt with LLMD!

Hi selfdiagnosed. I have heard some not so good things about him, such as he does not treat aggressively enough. There are some excellent Lyme doctors in NY.

OK - here's my update. I didn't end up going to see him...I found a doctor here who is ordering me the PIC line and both IV and oral antibiotics. I am getting the PIC tomorrow at 11:30!!!!!! Can't wait

Re: YES! I got an appt with LLMD!

Hi selfdiagnosed. Is this a Lyme doctor? Were you tested for all the co-infections? This is important. Many Lyme doctors believe the co-infections need to be treated first for Lyme treatment to be effective. This was true in my case.

What meds will you be infusing?

Good luck getting your PICC line put in.

Re: YES! I got an appt with LLMD!

Hello checking in...
Today is day 3 on the rocephin IV - I had a midline put in and will be getting the IV meds for a minimum of 28 days. I had already started taking the amoxicillin oral about 14days before this treatment started. Then I was switched to doxy because the probenecid that I was taking with the amox. was something that you aren't supposed to take with the rocephin. **ETA** up here, they treat with the oral meds at the same time as the IV meds.

I don't know much about the co-infections yet. I was tested for a few and they were negative though - so that's a good start. The doc treating me is the one from the urgent care ctr that caught the lyme, I don't see the Lyme doctor for another week - but I wanted to start this therapy ASAP!!

Can I ask where in Upstate NY you are (a general location is OK) I am in the Albany/Capital District area , are there any LLMD's that you know of around that area?

lj- you can check out dr Horowitz in Hyde Park, an hour south of Albany. I hear really good things about him if you are loking for someone thorough, agressive and has an open mind to alternative therapies. Good luck!
