Michelle, Im soory if anyone got that impression, I have Kansasii and ascsessus, The drugs are tough. I was one 3 IV for 6 months, I did them myself. Only amikacin had an effect on my hearing..I lost about 40%..The other drugs I took orally for 20 months..They made me feel like I had the flu everyday,but I got through it. I have some joint problems now and Im sure its from the ethambutol or rifampin. Now, when I look back on those 20 months and 6 of IV, I think, I did it, It was bad, but Im in remission now. I may be on IVs again, but at least I know I can do it. Best of luck to you. Cathln
