Just a quick M.S. update for the curious....
I just had my second Novantrone infusion this morning, but I am starting to doubt that thing about the whites of the eyes getting bluish. I think they tell people that since it encourages folks like me to sign up for being poisoned every three months. :-)
But the infusion went well once it started.
It started a little late because the order never made it in front of my neurologist and the nurses in Special Procedures will not do the infusion without a signed order (cannot be faxed). On top of that, the pharmacy will not dispense the medication to Special Procedures without such an order, either.
But my neuro came in herself and we chatted for a bit as she filled out the form, and the NP came down and gave me money for parking. So all was good.
I'll let you know how I am feeling in a few days. In the meantime, I am a conditional fan of the whole Novantrone thing.... :-)
