Well hello folks. As a few know I had my first Rituximab infusion.. it was due Tuesday but I got there and they tell me I need to have recent blood work done .. so had to postpone to today. (Groan). Let that be a warning .. make sure you get everything up to date before!
So I’m 5 hours in. All ok .. so far. They’ve checked my bp and temp every 15 mins to begin now every 30. Have speeded the drip up. I’ve felt a little spaced out but nothing untoward .. temp went up as did bp but both back down to normal now 2/3 hours left. If this is the height of it .. I feel I’m doing well. Touch wood continues ok .. for those who are worried .. I think the worse this is being inside on such a lovely day (I’m a real outdoor girl) and the boredom. Also an old lady with a pee bag opposite who isn’t that friendly.. ah well! Had some snacks to keep me going and a few phone calls and chats to friends and family. Will let you know when it’s over re side effects if any (🤞) TTFN. TT x
