Re: Treatment at home

Thanks Angel Eyes and Emmab98 that really does help. I think I’ll say I’m happy to do it myself. I did my injections for my IVF so I’m not too worried about that bit. I think just as it’s all so new still it’s just thinking about if I need that chance to see someone that I can ask questions to once a month but I can do that with a phone call I guess. 
Thank you for taking the time to reply

Re: Treatment at home

Hi , I have do my denosumab injections at home , I went to the hospital for a lesson to do it myself and have not had any problems doing my own , I also have my ribociclib sent with the phials . They normally send 3 injections at once which need to be kept in the fridge . It does make life easier than keep going to the hospital for appointments. I also have the nurse come to my house once a month to do my bloods, which is great as she fits my appointments in with my work schedule

Re: Treatment at home

Hello, 

How interesting. 

I have Denosumab. It looks an easy injection/short phial. If I were you I would grab the chance. I can see things going like this in the future - treatment from home. My current is by injection rather than IV (Phesgo) and I could not wait to switch. If my hospital asked, I would be happy to inject myself etc (but they are slow and haven't.)

Hope this helps reassure.

Treatment at home

I’ve had a letter tonight asking my opinion on me doing my treatment from home. It would mean I would get my denusobab sent to me and be taught how to inject it myself and the ribociclib tablets would be sent with them. I would still go in to have my bloods checked before. 
Just wondered if anyone else already does this/ has been asked the same?
