<Can I deduct any of this cost?>

A definate Maybe. The problem is that none of it counts at all until you pass the 7.5% of AGI threshold. If you have 100k AGI that means the first 7500 is excluded. If your AGI is lower, it may make more of the expense a deduction for you. If you find that the numbers work out for you, an amended return would be the way to go.
