In my last post/update I was on detox from Levaquin (Tavanic) antibiotic. Well, the detox lasted 3 weeks and then I was put back on Rocephin (Ceftriaxone) and NOT Levaquin which proved to be too strong for me (for now). So, since February 14th, I am having daily IVs (intravenous) infusions of 2gr Rocephin. Every single day, for half hour. Probably for 3 months. We will see. At least my picc-line is still in great condition. Crazy party-life huh? Anyway...
I also take Flagyl (Μetronidazole) orally, twice a week. The rest of my protocol stays the same.
Furthermore, I have a new physical-therapist. She is amazing! We've only done 3 sessions until now, but she has so many new ideas and exercises, I'm getting much more optimistic on this aspect. A lot of stretching, range of motion exercises, strength, balance, walk, and deep controlled breathing with a special exercising tool, is my routine... By the way, I don't have breathing problems, but I have weak abdomen, diaphragm, voice etc, so these tools can also help.
It's harder than it looks! You are supposed to breath-in (suck in air) so much, as to push those balls up.
Well, I promise my next update will not be in 2 months again :)
Hopefully with some good news!
I'm very concerned and sad about my walking...
