Not sure about a pump

But Herxing is basically the result of die off of the bacteria and such - and the toxins that build up - causes us to get more sick - before we start getting better...

some dont herx at all - some a little - and some a whole lot -

key is detoxing

Hi How bad is bad? is there a "blog" on just herxing? how long do they normally last, what's the worst anyone has herxed? and then felt better..

I had to quit Flagyl on the 7th day due to severe kidney/gall bladder issues and a lot of nerve tingling just on one side of my head. But having stopped and been off it for 2 wks, joint problems are quiet acute, like never before and I feel I should go back on the Flagyl.... anyway- I was really trying to gauge - I have a good tolerance to pain/discomfort and am willing to go through a lot to feel better-

Thanks so much for being out there, here and supportive

This is all new to me although the symptoms and trails and errors feel ancient

I have a Central Line that goes right into my chest. I take the antibiotics twice a day by IV that way. It's kind of gross to have a tube running out of your chest but it beats having a needle stuck in you every day, twice a day....

Here's a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hickman_line . That should get you some information. It's really not that hard to use and mine only has one line... not two.

it's possible, but I hear it doesn't hurt too bad...depends on your doc as to how often it has to be put in...

You don't get needled.... the whole reason for getting the port is to avoid the needles... Laughing
