Hi everyone. Hope you are all having a good day & as pain free as possible.
I've had a busy week so far, been doing a tour of hospitals. Was over the other side of the city for a bone density scan on Monday. Quite a walk to the clinic & my poor legs were aching but made it and in I went. I was measured first and having been 6 foot since 17 was surprised to be marked down at 5 foot 11. Well, said the nurse looks like you've shrunk. Onwards to the scan where after 5 attempts,being yanked about in every direction ( I have RA, gently please!!) and being accused of being squinty I was done.
Yesterday I was in another hospital to have my first rituximab infusion. I was so anxious( up to 99 as my lovely mum would say!) but everything went fine. Had been told to pack an overnight bag as I'm prone to bad reactions but after taking it very slow I got home at about 10 last night. I was so well looked after, everyone was lovely & made me feel safe. Bit wiped out today but fingers crossed this is the drug for me.
So, only Wednesday but I've shrunk, I'm squinty & I'm very relieved to have the first infusion over with! Time for tea, cake and a big old rest.
Love & hugs to all xxxx
