I remember before my first infusion I was nervous, so prepared myself well, mp3 player, magazines, drinks, snacks the lot - ended up being that the antihistamine they gave me before the infusion put me straight to sleep so I'd literally sleep through every infusion so all my worries about being hooked up and bored were pointless lol!
Was a wonder drug for me back when I was on it, I'd sleep through it, go home sleep some more til pretty much the next day and wake up a whole new person, tons of energy and symptoms dramatically reduced - within a day! I hope it provides you with as much relief as it did for me.
Like everyone else has said the nurses tend to be wonderful, all the ones I had were very competent and above all friendly, they're so well prepared in infusion centres, even though I ended up having a severe reaction (rare) after some years it was dealt with within seconds of occurring, they really were fantastic.
