I would appreciate your guidance on treatment for my husband. I have been down the chronic lyme/CFS route, so I understand the need to be on antibiotics longer than the IDSA recommends for treatment.
My husband, who has always been extremely healthy (except for annual sinus infections) was just released from the hospital after two weeks of treatment for both bacterial and viral infections. I actually think this whole thing started with Whopping Cough, brought home by our daughter from school. They broncioscoped his throat and cultured Cpn and Herpes Simplex 1.
My question is; do you treat acute Cpn differently than chronic Cpn? Of course we left the hospital with five days of antibiotics and five days of antivirals. I'm sure that is not sufficient to resolve anything completely.
He was on antibiotics weeks before going to the hospital: Omnicef, Cipro and Zithromax. In the hospital they had him on Biaxin and Ceftin. Upon leaving they hospital they switched to Avelox. I have made appointments with my LLMD, an Integrative doctor, and another doctor that I know treats both lyme and viral, just to cover our bases. We are waiting for any cancellations to get in sooner.
Where do we go from here with treatment? . Does he need to be on CAP, and for how long? Any gidance and input would be appreciated.
