If you are going to a regular doctor.
I read that when women go into the doctor complaining that they have worms, they interpret that to mean the person is a hypochondriac.
Just want to let you know. Of course it depends on the doctor.
You do remember that I just went thru this with my daughter.
I saw the live worms, because I'm assuming she spit out half the medicine and it didn't kill them, but it just made them let go.
Most disgusting thing you will ever see. Dead worms are not near as bad as live ones, esp when it's your 7 yr old daughter.
After the medicine, I saw the rice-looking stuff in her stool. Lots of it. I took some of it to the lab and they said there was NOTHING in it.
I did read that to detect parasites
that they need an absolutely fresh specimen and mine was not, but they were running the show.
Also, they were already dead. Are lab techs trained to only look for the live ones? I don't know.
Anyway, the doctor told me that she "believed" that Hayley had worms, but gave me a cup, and said if you see anymore, bring in the specimen. We had just taken 3 doses of their poisonous medicine..., now how am I gonna see another live worm! I'm not.
Best of luck to ya!
