Hey Everyone,
 
     I just had my second Benlysta infusion this afternoon.  Everything went well.  What I am finding amazing is that I have been feeling better than I have in a long time.  I am not as fatigued, have more energy and my joint inflammation is much more tolerable.  Part of me wants to give credit to the 10 mg. of Prednisone I am also taking, but I do think this new treatment just might work for me.  The hope is that after 6 weeks, we will begin reducing the Predisone, with the ultimate goal being no more it....which I am really looking forward to.  I go for round 3 on August 17th, and of course, will keep all of you posted.
 
Are there others currently on Benlysta treatment??

Not on it, but so happy you're feeling better!

Keep us informed on your progress.

Hi Joy,
 
      Thanks for the support!!!  I will definitely keep posting as I go through this process.  I have not had real relief in quite a few years, so this would be wonderful.  It might just help keep me working until I get ready to retire in 5 years.
