Complex problem: You are detailing a chronic infection, 9 months. Past treatments, your immune status and cause of your infection will be necessary to answer your question. There are clinical situations where infection can not be cleared, and best hope is for life long suppression. You need an infectious disease doctor on your health care team. Check with your doc and get referral to infectious disease specialist.
