I am so mad!!!
Aug 13, 2007
My daughter's PICC line is scheduled for removal today after 3 weeks of ceftraxione. She is still having headaches and has joint pain at night. I am trying to prevent her line from being removed, because I do not feel that she has been treated long enough.

I just got off the phone with her ID doctor who refuses to continue any treatment. She says to go to a neurologist (sp) for the headaches and take OTC pain relievers for joint pain. I am so mad! She claims that they never go beyond 3 weeks and that that is stretching it. She wanted to stop at 2 and I talked her into 3. Yet when pushed, she doesn't seem to have any real reason other than the fact that it has been 3 weeks.

I have called Dr. Jones office and have an appt for Wed. I don't know what to do about the continued time off work.

I guess my question is whether I should continue to fight the PICC line removal or if it is a moot point at this point. Will any doctors want to contiue with IV meds at this point or will they use oral meds?
