So I started on Cladribine injections this week.
Popped into the hospital Monday.
Had to sign a sheet which was making sure I had been told various things and given an information sheet. Then injection into stomach just right of the belly button. Was due to take the triple test (think that’s what they called it) but the person I needed to see was busy. Was also asked to give a urine sample which normally would not be a problem but typically I couldn’t so took the pot away to be brought back the following day. Was given 60 days of an antiviral drug to take one tablet each evening.
Tuesday went along again and had the second injection just to the left of the belly button this time. Took the test, 9-peg, how well do you manage with every day tasks and a timed 25ft walk.
Went on Wednesday for the third injection. Back on the right side this time.
Had a slight bruise from the Monday jab, I do bruise easily, but other than that nothing else to report at present.
Back to the hospital the week of 19 March for a blood test and then 2nd round of injections starting on 26 March.
Once the 2nd round of injections are done I have to go for a blood test every three months.
I had a letter from the hospital around the start of all of this with the schedule of blood test weeks, year 2 injections etc and the final blood test for this treatment is in April 2020 so only a little way off.
