I’m a PRO at these infusions now. #3 was last week Friday – everything went well; no worries, stress nothing. I fell asleep while it was doing its thing and I even went out later that nite! Of course, the head nurse (i’m a problem child, so she is the only one who takes care of me) still hasn’t figured my veins out…but this time i only had to get stuck twice as opposed to 3x the last time. It’s amazing the places that they go into as well – i woulda never thought that i would actually entertain using the bony side of my wrist!
I still can’t say if the medication is working or even doing anything…but the good news is that nothing is getting worse and nothing new is happening. I also confirmed without a doubt on this last visit that i am anaemic. I would love to know how that happened all of a sudden and i can’t blame the Tysabri because my iron started getting low before i started on it. I haven’t experienced any of the classic reasons for iron deficiency – major blood loss being the most significant – and there really isn’t any explanation for it, but hey! i’m dealing with it and it’s not such a major issue to lose any sleep over.
