So I went in at 9 am to the day unit , got a comfy chair and they checked my urine , took my monitoring bloods then started a steroid infusion. Then got paracetamol and Piriton also to reduce risks of reactions.
I was also told in my case to take all my others tablets so; leflonamide, methotrexate, insulin x 3 injections, naproxen high dose, Adizem , bendrofluazide, lisinopril, Lansoprazole !! Then they started the Rituximab infusion. The procedure took 8 hours and I got checked every half hour.
I took a couple of DVDs ( gone girl) amazingly clever movie I thought and Sunshine on Leith( musical ) based on on Proclaimer music but sad and happy movie.
Git a sandwhich and tea from the lovely staff.
So tired and my joints really ache today but hope that's a sign it's working, go back for second one and my nurse said most people start to feel better after the second infusion! Also start radiotherapy now next Monday!
So busy busy but resting today xxxx
Hope you are all ok xx
