Habs Hockey.....I just got back from Doctors....also I took two more shots last night. things are okay...better but not great. I told the doc I rate life two weeks ago as a 5...now it is a 7. Still 6 to 7 trips to the john (today 7 so far) and the same pain and nausea when I go...but my recovery time from each trip is much faster and my energy levels are much higher. i truly am hungry throughout the day and three meals a day has been the norm for the last 2 weeks.
The shots last night only hurt as much as the first 4...so no problem there. Actually having them done at home while lying in my own bed probably helped ease any tension issues.
I don't know a lot about insurance comanies and how they work...but I do know that my insurer..CIGNA...never questioned my going straight to Humira and bypassing remicade. I personally feel that they look at each one as treatment options. They did call my doctors office and asked for more information, but they approved it without any real issue.
I hope you get the treatment you want and that it gives you the relief you want ...
I told the doctor if this is all get out of Humira it is enough for me...if I get more even better...but if it slips down and I get less relief, then it is not worth the effort, pain or risk. I am double dosing Two shots every other week) so I am optimistic it will work.
