I MADE IT through lst IVIG! Yeah!
« on: June 07, 2010, 03:46:09 PM »
Good thing I had my advisors here on this forum.  The nurse was great, but started to hang Carmunex (?) or the one with sucrose.  I said I thought I was getting Privigen. (I lied ) And she hung that instead.  I got a 20 mg bottle, 10 mg, and another 10 or a 5 mg. bottle.  Seems like a low dose but what do I know? Now 3 more days to go.

So, I got 25 mg. benadryl to start, got a little drowsy but never slept.  Everyone slept, there was no one to talk to except b4 infusions started. 

The only side effect I have is a headache and backache.  Nurse gave me toradol...it helped a little but the headache is worse now.

I'm still hydrating....goood thing you guys told me what to do cause they sure didn't.

All in all, the experience was good.

Any suggestions on the getting rid of the headache?  Took tylenol already.  Thanks to everyone for all your help!
