Day 1

A board to discuss Revimmune as a potential therapy for multiple sclerosis

Day 1

Postby RedPenguins » Thu May 07, 2009 4:49 pm

Well, Day 1 is winding down nicely.

Started this morning by having the Hickman line placed....and then I was brought directly to my room. They started hydration shortly thereafter. Had to have a repeat sinus CT as the one I had 2 weeks ago was NOT they did another.

First dose of chemo came a lot earlier than anticipated: 5pm! (last time it was close to 10pm!)

Went in without a hitch and it's now 7:45pm and I still feel okay - no problems. Have a headache but had it before they started the chemo. I think I will ask them for something for it.

I was anticipating being really now I'm sitting and waiting. And just for good measure, once again to tempt fate, I ate "crap" (ring ding anyone? teehee). But alas, no sickness - as of yet anyhow....

One down, three to go.

I've managed to watch two movies while I've been here so far... I'm quite bored....doesn't help that I'm here alone. :(

Glad it is started and you are on your way! They really had you moving on Day 1. Just checked in to see how it was going! I got N/V on day 4 too. I have a feeling it is going to get you this time. Glad you took the DVD player!
Thanks for the update!!!
