I only had one MTX injection. I had no immediate reaction to it, but my liver levels went sky high, so no more injections for me. I can't really answer your question except with some common sense. I would eat if I was hungry (and since you are trying to but on some weight), but I would keep it to very mild food. ie, something that wouldn't be awful if it came back up should you get upset in the very near future. Try some eggs and toast to start, maybe some chicken soup, or mashed potato. Really bland.

Well thats good! I think the best thing to do now is go and relax and find something to distract yourself with, looking for side-effects might make them appear. Keep drinking plenty of water and stay away from strong smells (can bring on nausea) hopefully there will be no noticeable side-effects. Upset stomach is more likely with tablet form. Now I'm on injections I don't really get nausea anymore, just sleep very heavily after I've taken it. I took it last night, slept late today and since I've been up I've been bouncing around doing a million and one things! Heres hoping it sits well with you and helps get everything under control.

Congrats!
Hope this starts the road to feeling better.
I would say it might be a good idea to be gentle on your gut (bolonga, mayo, sound a bit difficult), with the food stuff stick with safe foods like mash potatoes, chicken soup, potato soup, maybe toast, crackers.
 
Do not get freaked out if a yellow spot develops where your injection went in your skin.  It is quite normal.

Nope. No injection spot. Just had a bagel and cream cheese as well. Drinking some Orange pop... Haven't had pop in awile.
Hopefully nothing but good things.

Always something new with us i guess...

I really hope i get enough time out of MTX to where a new drug comes out safe and effective.
I'd like to go as long as i can before the Knife.

6 hours then I'd say things are looking good! With the tablets the worst of the side-effects would appear within the first couple of hours and be fading after about 8 and then just fatigue. With injections I've never been awake beyond 30 mins of taking it so no idea about side-effects during the first 8 - 10 hours as I'm sound asleep! Just wake up like a zombie but get over that fairly quickly. Get a good nights kip and hopefully that'll be it!

Hey debil... (maybe you'll have to shorten your name after the mtx has time to work it's plan ;-) ) Congrats to you. I sure hope you keep on feeling "normal" and that your body tolerates the mtx. Really - it's my last (real) hope for a response before either dealing with blood loss, high sed rate, fevers, night sweats (though better with hormones), exhaustion, osteoporosis... well it's either that mtx helps, I deal with all that or I get a temp ostomy.

So here's to starting MTX. May it be tolerated well and may that patch be long gone in a couple months. :-)))) Sending good thoughts your way!

that opened a little spot in my heart for you man. Being a guy with osteoporosis at age 22 sucks. Yes. I dont want my resection either. MTX is ALL there is. Doctor says "you can try to prove me wrong" but remicade had no effect on you.

etc.. etc..

Hopefully it gets me somewhere the Rest couldn't And than a new drug in time.

Ty for the kind words.
