Just popped my last rifampicin

Hey ...

I have been popping them since last February and I have just popped my last rifampicin. That's it. No more rifampicin. No more religiously waiting for 2 hours after food or an hour before. No more extremely dark urine. Finished.

I shall still continue to take my other antibiotics ... until they too run out. I haven't done a count up but I guess that will be in the middle of the first quartile of next year. In the meantime, I think I need to get plenty of milk thistle down my gullet and give my liver a winter break.

Congratulations!  And you worked at doing it right.  My feeling is that it takes several weeks to get completely out of your system and for the full improvement to happen - maybe even longer.  Keep exercising!  I am still improving.

Hey ...

Thank you all for all of your good wishes. I shall post again in the next couple of weeks and let you know how I'm getting on. I will be doing a pulse soon anyway.

I know this stuff works for some. It worked for my friend Moggie. She finished antibiotic treatment about a year ago and is doing fine. No stick (cane) and is walking normally.

I finally got my fellow hyperbaric diver Leigh, pulsing a few months back. Finally, he is doing it properly. He says that it has not made any detectable difference to him. I have detected that he seems more with it and less hard work. Getting your marbles back is nothing to be scoffed at.

Anyway, I wish everybody good luck and hope that wellness what find us all.

Glenn, you are so right when you say that getting your marbles back is nothing to be scoffed at.  It is also hard for the person who lost them to realise that they are now on the way to recovery.  I must have been losing mine for a few years before starting treatment: I knew we had lost a few friends but didn't realise for quite some time that it was because they didn't know how to deal with the situation.

Also with another of David's patients, he came to see him at the hospital, carrying a new pair of shoes he had bought in the January sales. He had walked all the way.  Living a mile or so further out of town than us, and the hospital being another mile on the south side of the river, David had to point out that there was no way he could have walked as far before treatment: he was thinking that he really hadn't improved that much...............Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Well done SG, i really, really hope it helps. I know you don’t think you’re any better. i’m realising that your system needs to be clear of ABX, which, hopefully, means you’ve killed the CPN, before your body can rebuild. I hope that’s true for you!
