NOTHING is worse than the taste of prednisone!!! BLECH!! I chewed like 13 packs of gum while I was getting those infusions! LOL!
YAY!!! I'm so happy!! Your creatinine is AWESOME!! My creatinine is 2.0. Which is great for me. It's staying anywhere from 1.9 - 2.2...so it's stable. I spilled ALOT of blood and protein for YEARS and still maintained a decent creatinine. It's worrisome, I know, but I don't panic until my creatinine starts to rise!
I have to say Amy, you are very impressive with your knowledge and maturity in handling all of this! I've enjoyed chatting with you and appreciate your attitude. Hang tough girl. You're going to be amazed at how God uses your life to help others!!! Keep me up to date!!
I have taken dozens and dozens of procrit shots over the years. NO BIGGIE! May have slight joint pain/achiness, but nothing like "lupus" joint pain; only last a lil while and I only rarely had this side effect. It's like an insulin needle; small/thin. Don't hurt at all.
