Subject: INFUSIONS IN HOSSY

Hi guys

asking a question for a friend on here, how many of u have had Infusions at the hosp? how long did it take to kick in? was in immediately,next day? or a few days after Infusion? also If u did feel better for having the Infusion, how long b4 the affects wore off and a Flare up happened ? Also does the pain totally go? or some remain, but most of the pain goes away? hope ive made sense, I dont know much about it really, altho my nurse orig wanted me to go on it, but decided to put me on Enbrel instead...thanks everyone

Hi Christine

Yes I remember it was u now(was too laxy to check Past messages on here ) lol thing is, I was orig told by my Biologics Nurse, that I cld have infusions, or go on self injections of Enbrel...she told me she thought in her personal opinion(dont want to worry anyone) that its best I dont have Infusions in Hossy as I wld be at great risk to catching infections in hosp.... she mentioned that to me, becos when I was hospitalised in 2002, with Reiters, I ended up getting C. Difficile(nearly died) anyeay, thats y she didnt wzant me to have the Infusions in hossy, what I dont get is Y they dont work for u? whats going to happen for u now? go back to Enbrel ?

anywy take care, speak soon
#Love Jill x

I had a 'Retuximab' Infusion last year and am due another one on Monday. To be honest I cant remember how I felt. I was very tired for a few days (if I can remember rightly) and wasnt so tired on the second one. I will write down how I feel this time and get back to you. Basically all good I think!!
