Finished second infusion. Side effects were similar to first infusion , but didn't last as long. I was walking around during the process and felt pretty good. During my 30 minute observation I got chills, dizziness, and nausea. Also , I was very fatigued, more so than first infusion. Blood pressure dropped to 90/50. I was released in approx. 2 1/2 hours. got home and went straight to bed. Woke up in about 2 hours feeling better. Drank fluids and had soup. Checked blood pressure that night 137/80. Felt okay the next morning. On the day of infusion, I ate breakfast at 530a, started infusion at about 9am and finished around 1030a. Nothing to eat until that night. I went a long time without food and maybe that caused severe fatigue. One more to go and I will be done.
