Hey guys, so this is annie here. I haven't had the best week this week, as have been feeling hugely run down, this fever that i have had for the past week, just won't go for some odd reason, my ankle has decided to brake again, so unfortunately I will be undergoing my 4th surgery on my foot, but my 7th surgery in total, to hopefully fix my ankle once and for all. So, this week, i have hospital appointments back to back , as per usual, and just when I was enjoying a break from trekking back and forth to the hospitals for a while. i never get used to how often my appointments are, although i guess i should be used to spending so much time in hospitals now, as it has been 6 six years since my dreadful RA diagnosis.
Although, on a happier note, my infliximab infusions seem to be helping, as my admissions to the hospital haven't been so frequent recently, which is a big change for me, also my mobility seems to be lot better as well, which means that I am actually able to go about my daily routine at the moment, which i am very thankful for. I really don't know what would have happened, if it wasn't for this amazing infliximab therapy. Although my appetite seems to suck these days, which unfortunately is one of the side effects of the multiple medications i am having to take currently, and although I was warned this would happen, i didn't think it would be as bad as it has been
Sorry guys, I think I am just having a bad RA flare at the moment, so i am just feeling a bit frustrated at the moment, as I have been house bout for quite a few months, as I had to give up my dream job, as i haven't been well for a while now. so thats my rough week in a nutshell.
