Re: Infusion

Hey catt, sorry to hear you're sounding so overwhelmed and lost. You're still you, you're just going through some really *bleep* things right now. You're still in there, and things will improve - hang in there!

Onto the bisphosphonates... I'm halfway through my course of 6 infusions, one every 6 months. Not going to sugar coat it: the first one was pretty rough. Struggled to sleep the first night as everything just sort of low-key ached, then a couple of days of flu-like symptoms. Paracetamol and plenty of fluids is my best advice, and just plan to crash out on the sofa. In the grand scheme of things, though, not so bad, and only a short spell of it!

The second and third ones have been loads easier - a couple of days of feeling a bit under the weather, but not that bad at all.

Actually getting the infusions is absolutely fine. Take something to entertain you, a book or something. Mine only take about half an hour to get, but by the time they set you up and faff about, I'm in for an hour each time. I didn't feel anything while I was getting it, or immediately afterwards.

Happy to answer any other questions. Keep taking care of yourself xx
