Hello, several of you may have seen my posts regarding Tocilizumab infusions/injections. I finally had an appointment today to see a Consultant for an assessment before my Rheumy Consultant can arrange for me to have the above infusion. Good News!! I was told he will write to my Rheumy Consultant to give him the go ahead. I am hoping this won't take too long and after 12 weeks on the infusion/injections I will be able to start coming off the steroids and the swelling in my legs and feet will start to reduce as well as all the other side effects, my moon face and the damage it has done to my hair.
Now I have to wait to hear from my clinic as to when my appt for the first infusion will be. I did speak to my biologics nurse's secretary this afternoon and she has promised to put a note on the nurses desk and my Consultant is back next week.
Fingers crossed, those that I can, it won't take too long. I want to visit my family in Canada whilst my grand-daughters are on school summer holiday.
Hope you are all feeling well, take care. S
