I am due to go into a major London Hospital for five days of Iloprost infusion, eight hours a day. I have refused this treatment for some years, but my situation has now become critical and my Raynaud's is bad all year round.
I am very nervous as I refuse all drugs if I possibly can. What can I expect? Do I have to stay in bed? Do I wear day clothes whilst the infusion is administered? If I am expected to have the infusion whilst in a chair and I am ill, do I then go into a bed?
This probably sounds naive to most, but I am very, very nervous and would appreciate any advice.
