just wanted to say i was infected for 1 1/2 years with lyme and bartonella (only the bartonella was confirmed by tests) found a lyme doctor in february and was treated with oral antibiotics for 8 months. we have stopped the antibiotics and i am rehabilitating myself. i plan on doing another protocol just to wipe it out entirely. i cannot do the things i used to do yet but i'm not really sure i want to. i hope this brings you hope. i'm not fully better but i can function.
another thing i didnt realize i would have a problem with is Post traumatic stress from the whole thing. im young and right before i got really sick my grandma almost died from cancer. so that really traumatized me being sick myself. anyways i'm seeing a health psychologist who specializes in trauma as well. its great but i had still feeling lousy emotionally.
Hi Abuddog. Do you feel you have been treated long enough? It is my understanding that most Lyme doctors treat until a person is symptom free plus at least two months longer.
Eight months is really not that long of treatment when you were infected for a year and a half. Just be very vigilant of your symptoms.
no i dont think i was. but i am feeling a whole lot better. doc thinks i had bartonella infection which is gone and now i have mercury toxicity. i'm not sure. ill trust him until i get my results of the toxicity and if i'm not then im gonna go to a doc to do the marshall protocol to get rid of anything else in my way.
