Nervous! Arrived 09.00. Fantastic nursing team.Explained the procedure completely. Within 15 mins, the canula was in - this was the bit I was most worried about. The last time I had this done, I was being induced! Apart from a slight (can I say the word 'pr***k?) it was totally painless. The tubes were taped in place and off we went. Two and a half hours later the machine beeped to say that I was full up. I had a very comfy reclining chair, which I made total use of! Any chance to put my feet up...... Snuggly warm blanket, next thing I knew it was time for a cup of tea and a biccie.
Hospital lunch was dire - highly recommend taking your own snacks!
An hour's observation after the canula was taken out and I was on my way home - driving myself!
Got home and felt really tired so had a couple of hours in bed. Felt slightly nauseaous after getting up, but had a light supper, put my pj's on and sat in the garden reading.
Just gone 8.00 p.m and feel ready for bed again. Arms and legs 'heavy'. Not sure yet if I will go to work tomorrow or not yet.
To anyone facing their first infusion - don't worry. If I can do it, you can. It really is nothing to worry about. Just enjoy the chance to put your feet up for a couple of hours.
