Re: dr visits every 6 months....

kicker... i know exactly what you mean. the first 2 years seems like an endless stream of labs, visits, vaccinations, etc... ive had all my hep vaccs. 2 rounds of pneumo vac, ive always gotten a flu shot, TB, DTap and so on & so forth. ive been extremely compliant & have always done exactly what Dr Rod has said... i have asked this man more questions in the past 6 years than i have collectively over my entire life.... i guess it just seems strange. i in no way want to seem like im gloating or seem ungrateful - honest. it has been a a very strange ride the past few years. i can honestly say that since being diagnosed & doing EXACTLY what he says i have only gotten sick 1 time - and that was walking pneumonia 3-4 years ago. i took Levaquin for 3 days, my face swelled to the size of a jack o lantern & he told me to stop taking it & "see what happens". within 4 days i was back to my old self. i had a horrible cough for bout 4 weeks, but nothing Robitussin & some cough drops couldnt handle. i told him i would still come in March - 1) to help minimize my $850 out of pocket for my 1st med refill (i do the 3 month mail order) & 2) for peace of mind. i guess if no one replies with a negative (no pun intended. LOL) reply, i'll give it a whirl & see him in September when its time for PPD & the flu shot. so weird that i have anxiety after all these years....
