Im in a bad patch now so ill give you all the info based on when it was goin good for me. and trust me its worth it, it made me feel so good, i forgot i was sick for a long time.
i was always hungry no matter what but i think a lot if that had to do with being on 60 mg prednisone. everytime food touched my lips tho or sometimes when i smelled it it was bathroom time. it took me about 4 infusions to notice a big difference. probably after the third there was a definite decrease in the bathroom runs and the nausea stopped after my second of i remember correctly. i wasnt completely in remission until about 8 infusions or so but it got a little better each time.
for me when i get it i get flu like symptoms for about 3 days and then i feel better. for me it takes a week or so then i notice its definitely working an di dont have problems until about 7 weeks into it. the last week is worse but, SO not anything i cant handle.
bring a pillow and a snack when you go it can take awhile. takes me about 3 1/2 hours total more or less. i always bring one of those squishy neck pillows casue those chairs can be kind of uncomfortable even tho they are recliners. well thats what i get anyhow. and for some reason (and its not just me i heard some people do this) as soon as the cade starts im out! i sleep so hard for some reason it sedates me a little bit. i get premeds now benydryl, tyelenol and steriods so that makes me sleepy too. i always get a weird flush on my face for a few hours but its not a reaction or anything just what happens to me. and i always have s omeone drive me becasue i get a :weird: feeling, kinda buzzy or something i cant describe it just weird. its not borthersome and it goes away within 2 hours.
hmmmmm i think thats it :) i hipe this helps!
