How long to take fluconazole if you don't have a proper diagnosis

I still can't get a doctor to even order a test so I can diagnose invasive candidiasis properly. I will probably just have to order fluconazole online. Studies suggest one would need to inject it IV. I was scared to do it before but I am at a point I am willing to figure out how to do it. Apparently fluconazole is as effective as Amphotericin B for candidemia in immunocompetent patients.

Apparently you can switch to oral administration after 10 days. The problem is I don't know how long to take it then. You are supposed to go on for at least two weeks after sterilization of your blood. But how would I know if/when it's cleared? I can only go off the symptoms I suppose. I read a study where they mentioned a median of 30 weeks. Seems I'll just have to take it for around 30 weeks & see what happens. When would you guys stop?

What do you guys think of this plan?
