follow up on my 4th ocrevus


thank you all for all your well wishes!It was very uneventful for the treatment.happy days! of course,with the steroids I feel fabulous right now,I need it, will come to the end,but for now...:)Now the hospital I get this at,they moved the infusion center in the hospital and it is beautiful,but were still disorganized ,I was 30 min.late being called back for appt. and that was no big deal,but what was I had to wail 2 1/2 hours for my ocrevus to be delivered from phamacy,because they won't make it until you are there,never took that long,so I live 70 miles away and I went in it was getting daybreak,and I came out it was getting dark,8:15 am to 4:30 pm.urrgghh! never like that, 3 or 4 hours max. and 70 miles home .they will get those that don't know my story,I had a side effect the first 3 times, and instant sore throat and they give me more meds and instantly better,so now that they expect it,so now they double my pre meds.steriods and since I am allergic to benedryl they give me Zyrtec and make me start taking it at home 1 week out and give me doulble, it works!!!I know I sound whiny but the treatment went great and I grateful for all meds for this disease! only 2x a year!

Hurrah for a great experience with the meds, but I'm sorry about the delays. I hope next time that it goes more smoothly.
