Since my last post, I received a call from my consultant on Monday evening. He asked me to come in the next day to discuss the results of my MRI. He explained that I had a blood vessel which has narrowed in my brain but that this vessel is not 'active' and other vessels are supply blood to that area. He then asked me to come in today for a lumbar puncture to confirm CNS involvement and exclude other possibilities. The procedure itself was relatively comfortable and went smoothly. However, upon the doctor completing the LP, I suddenly burst into a crying fit. What was I upset about? I don't even know at this point! Thankfully, the nurses on the ward were very supportive and helped to calm down. The results should be available in a couple of days. My consultant also prescribed me Aspirin to thin my blood. I'll be seeing him next week Thursday to start my first Rituximab infusion and then have the second infusion two weeks later. In the mean time, I continue on 40mg Prednisolone and 1g MMF a day. On the bright side, I'll be going home from uni tomorrow for Christmas.
