Hiya well woke up this morning and felt really crap think i might have a cold coming but ached everywhere. Anyway went to hospital for the infusion and was glad when it was over veins were playing up today so got a lovely bruise lol anyway i did get to see the rhummy he came and had a chat with me and looked at my hands and feet he basically said that on my next appointment with him in august if it is still the same i will proberly have to go on more meds ie Metotrexate and if that doesn't work have the injections. well i know they are doing all they can for me and i have been very lucky that i can see the rhummy nurses as soon as i need to and also have seen the rhummy consultant twice already in 3 months and lots of u wait months but i still feel scared. I know this will pass i'm just having a bad day today after having the infusion my mouth always feel like i'm sucking metal its awful and for some reason i always feel really panicky after having it and have been really down tonight few tears well actually a lot of tears (i'm not a squinny honest)but luckily i have a wonderful husband who gives me lots of hugs and waits on me hand and foot bless him.Anyway sorry to be on such a downer at the moment girls but i'm sure i will bounce back and tomorrow is another day ay love to all xx

Have you just had the 'Retuximab' Infusion? I've just had my second dose on Mon 6 July. You definitely need 7 days to get over each one. I think the fatigue is the main problem, although after the first one (2 weeks ago) I did have chest pains and nausea on exertion so I have listened to my body and completely rested this time. I've also got very emotional - more than likely because the body is going through so much and messing up the chemical balance. Apparently our tongues are very vascular so if anything is going through our veins then our tongue will be sensitive to it.

Hang on in there and if any of you need to chat about retuximab infusions, I'm here! Dont forget it is a mild form of chemotherapy so bound to make us feel shit!
