I have officially been infused!
I had my first Tysabri infusion today at 1:30. Everything went like clockwork. I answered some standard questions and then got started. The infusion took about an hour and then I had to stay an hour longer for observation. I finally relaxed about half way through the actual infusion when I realized that my tongue did not taste like metal and my head didn’t feel like exploding. I’ve already scheduled my second infusion for August 14th.
Dr. Foley said that typically, major side effects will present themselves during the second infusion. I’m not worried. I always get side effects, so if I make it through the night with no problems, I think I am in the clear.
It’s been about three and 1/2 hours since the infusion and I feel fine. My head feels a bit heavy but no major headache or other side effects. I am so hopeful that Tysabri is the drug that will help to slow my MS progression…and do it without torturing me with side effects.
