    First Infusion 10/16

    I have my first infusion scheduled for next week. I have been reading everything posted here. I am nervous, but I still think this is the best medication for me right now. I know lots of people like Tysabri, but my doctor and I are not fans (this is a personal decision for me - not at all discouraging anyone on Tysabri - whatever works for each of us ).

    I hope it goes well.

    Hi Boymom

    Good luck with your infusion next week!

    Hope it goes 'smooth as silk' for you.

      I just read your post in the Serious Infections thread. I am interested in what your neuro says about monitoring.

      I wish you all the best on Ocrevus.

          Hydrate before and during. I peed 10-12 times during the infusion time and had no reaction after going home nor the days following.

            Day After Infusion One

            Well, finding a vein yesterday was fun (yes I was very well hydrated, from day before and that morning) but otherwise was uneventful. No problems with itching or any other reactions, other than sleepiness from the benadryl.

            Feeling ok today, no problems. So I guess that's good? FIngers crossed that the next one is ok too.
