I have a feeling that I am on the winning side of this thing but then started to have a pain in my right side, back & under my ribs, I knew it was one of my organs. My doctor called me in to go over my current test results and ordered my to stop all antibiotic immedialy. My liver ensimes were elevated to a point that we needed to allow it to return to normal. It is not unusual for the liver to elevate while on so many antibiotics and he is watching me like a hawk. He explained that we need to see how quickly the liver recovers to see which one of the antibiotics is taxing my liver. Quick improvement means the IV Rochepin slow means the oral. If it is the IV Rochepin we will just change to a different infusion.
Had another CD57 today - should know soon if there is more improvement.
If anyone thinks being sick means that you sit around the house all day ...boy are they wrong, all this driving to doctor appointments is like having another full time job and exhausting....but I do believe I am finally close to the finish line, that is why when I don't feel good I can't really wrap my head around it because I feel as if it is gone but then have to realize I might still have a ways to go. It's been over 2 1/2 years since I had the noticeable onset of my problems and 1 year 1 month of treatment now.
