4 Doses of Humira today (3/28)…

So i go in to be trained how to use the med. and they up and tell me I am going to be injected with the shiznit! Not as much pain as i thought there would be. Glad i had stephanie with me. she actually injected me after the training nurse showed us how. 4 doses today and then 2 more in 2 weeks and then 1 every two weeks after that for the rest of my life. nice. met my new gi doc today. dr. jha. ok dude, but definitely not dr. fisher. i liked dr. fisher. too bad he had to retire.

Going in to learn how to use Humira tomorrow (3/27)…

So…I finally received the Humira this past week and made an appointment to learn how to use it. I am scared as hell about using this stuff. But the time has come to use it. I am in pain (real-honest-to-God pain) tonight and I am hoping that this stuff really works and takes away the pain and inflammation and delays the inevitable surgery. Stephanie is going to come with me to the training so she can help if need be and hold my hand because i am a big pussy about pain and will probably blank out as the nurse is training me.
