I wouldn't say I'm cured yet. I start thinking I am, but just when I do they start popping out again. At least they are very small now, which gives me hope. I took a break from the SC/IV ivermectin for a few days and have been only taking the Valbenza. That worked really, really well to the point that I thought it was over but tonight my wrist started itching again and ... sure enough, theyyyy're still around. I'm developing cellulitis at some of the injection sites, despite being on doxy and bactrim and getting rocephin shots two days in a row, with a mild fever starting today. They wouldn't take me at the last hospital I begged, because I didn't have fever. I was told "this is a chronic disease issue". No shit. Maybe if the fever holds they'll put me on IV Antibiotics , but I'll have to have friends sneak me my vet meds or I will surely die. The only reason I was striving for hospitalization was for the albendazole which I couldn't afford, but thankfully due to this forum I found the Valbenza (mix it with coffee creamer and milk and you can't taste a thing). Still hoping for the best. At least it's nothing like what it used to be. What hell.
