What a day!!I did it!

Okay guys, I got my first iv solumedrol infusion and immediately after gave my first Avonex shot. Now, I'm just waiting for side effects, cause I know they'll come...just a matter of when and how bad. I'm trying to stay positive and even tho I have a wonderful family, they can't truly understand and I know you all can. Thanks for being there...God Bless you all.

Re: What a day!!I did it!

I have been sitting here where I work with the Health Boards website open..waiting to hear from you! YAY!!!! You DID it!!!! Aren't you proud of yourself for conquering that fear? I AM PROUD OF YOU!!!! How did it go? side effects almost always show up 4 to 5 hours after the injection. Have you taken any Tylenol or Advil?

How was it? Did you do it yourself? Good luck, I'm glad that initial part is over for you and now you know. I have no idea but after reading what other people here say I can only imagine, but I'm routing for you. YAY!!!!!

Re: What a day!!I did it!

Thanks you guys for caring so much and know that I care about you too. I have been feeling kinda okay...took tylenol and have pretty much been a couch potato. Next week I plan on taking the injection right before bed. I have to tell you the shot itself went smooth as silk....hardly felt it. I'm more anxious about side effects. It's been right at 5 hours and I feel ,like I said, sorta okay. I"ve been feeling so awful anyway, it's hard to tell. I am up at the computer obviously so can't be too bad. Maybe the solumedrol if offsetting some of the side???? Who knows. Yes, Tiarah, I did everything myself...they made me. I have a (pik) line in so that I can give my iv to myself tomorrow and the next day. She put in the line and then had me do all the rest myself so that she could make sure I could do it. It wasn't hard, just overwhelming when you've never done it before. Right now it's just a waiting game. I'm goind to try to keep my mind occupied for next of hours before I hit the hay. Hope you all have a good restful night. I'll let yall know what the morning holds in store. It's always a mystery, right?
