Just back from my lesson in how to inject myself at the Day unit at the Western General in Edinburgh. I thought I'd share the experience though most of you already know all this..
It took about half an hour and the nurse gave me about 6 weeks worth of injections and a sharps bin. She told me to get bloods done fortnightly to begin with just to monitor the impact of the different form of delivery. I found the needle longer than the one I was used to using for my diabetes 2 meds, but just went for it. I'm glad I've got a bit of a tummy! Useful at least for this. She went into disposal of anything with mtxate on it putting quite a lot of emphasis on this. And suggested that if I travel (am planning 2 weeks in France at the end of September) I take my pills which will be easier to deal with and wont poses problems of disposal.
She also told me that if I had a reaction on the injection site which was red and bigger than a 50p piece which lasted longer than 48 hours I should contact the specialist nurses and my GP.
So, so far so good. Just thought someone might be interested.
