Medication

Posts relating to medication – except biological drugs

This was today, again. Me and mom went along to the Endoscopy suite at Good Hope for my Humira appointment with my IBD nurse this afternoon. She got trained by my nurse, Ruth, and had to give me my shot. And you know what? No pain. After a try out with the dummy pen, she was encouraged to do my…

The BIG H – revisited, slightly

So yesterday was Humira Thursday. I had an appointment with my IBD nurse to get me fixed up with this injection, phew! It was pretty uneventful. I had tears – as usual now with the Big H, the bastard – and she did my injection for me. Pushed down on the ‘trigger’ and gave me my Crohn’s medication. Thank goodness!…

Outcomes: – Iron Infusion in the coming weeks. – Humira injection next Thursday can be done with my IBD nurse in the endoscopy suite at the hospital. – Colonoscopy is due in 2 months time.

The One with Alot of Swearing

From bad to worse?

I am going to go out on a limb here and say the following: I am pretty sure that this is not just a cold anymore. It has been 5 weeks and it not going anywhere. I also pretty certain that it has gotten worse in the last couple days. It started last last month with just the sniffles. I…

Another.. second Thursday?!

It feels like forever since my last injection of Humira, but it was only two weeks ago. Alot has happened in two weeks… So, I almost forgot the date and day and that it was indeed time for some more lovely Anti TNF medication. If you’ve been following me through the Humira experience, you’ll know that the last couple of…

Humira Thuuuuursssdddaaaaayyyy! :D

I sound full of excitement and hope, from that title, don’t I? Well, it was difficult today. My insanity prevailed more than my logic. My logic dictates that it is a 10 second injection for 14 days of greatness. What does my insanity think? Needle. Needle! NEEDLE! Painful painful prick of a needle! I sat with the pen posed on…
