Good afterno Starting to think about my appointment on Tuesday feeling apprehensive. It is my second assessment for biologics. I will either be put forward or if not successful start Arava.
I was given 4 drug leaflets to look at, to be honest not really looked to closely. Don't want to get my hopes up again. In June I was told would be able to go on a trial. My Nurse thinks now these are the way forward. On 3 dmards and had loads of streroids but still having problems. Anyway that did not happen as you can imagine I felt really down. Now just going to try for going onto a tnf. Passed first assessment. If I fail on Tuesday I will start Arava and hopefully stop one dmard don't want four. Problem is my B.p was high when last checked I am on meds for it. One Nurse said I would not be able to start Arava.
Just want desperately for something to work. Have been fairly well controlled for years until last Christmas.
Hope they don't ask me to make any decisions at the moment I have a lot on my mind. Everything seems to come at once. I am organising a fun dog show to raise funds for the hospital I work at. My main priority at the moment is our elderly dog who has just been diagnosed with fibrosis of her lungs.
Bit long winded I know any shared information if anyone has had similar dilema would be appreciated.
Thank you Moomie
