Excellent F2F rheumy appointment...

Brushwork profile image

Very pleased that the Tocilizumab is working so well for me. I will be reviewed again in 4-5 months and if all is still going well regular appointments will stop. I will still see the biologic nurse of course, but only see the consultant if and when needed.

I was told to enjoy a full life, make sure I continue to exercise and eat well, but to be mindful that this may not last.... Well, we all know that, don't we.

If RA has taught me anything, it is to make the most of and enjoy every moment of the good times.

I hope all those who are still suffering soon find the magic medication that gives them back a 'good' life, its remarkable when it happens.

Go gently through the days and nights....

Excellent! Tocilizumab is going to be the next wonder (prednisone sparing) drug! I’m hearing and reading really good things about it and so far, the word is that it works long term—years!! 🤞🏼🤞🏼

So, get out and hug your beloved ones, smell the roses 🌹 and dance 💃🏻 🕺.
