Over a year since I relapsed and we’re now on route to my transplant.
Today I started on my G-CSF injections. These are used to stimulate my stem cells and I have to take three, every evening for 4 days. I actually don’t mind the injections as I’m lucky enough not to have a fear of needles. I’m not sure about the rest. Like with childbirth, I have parked my previous experiences 10 years ago, well in my internal being. Somewhere not to be revisited unless I read back on my blog (hmmm, why did I decide that was a good idea?!?!)
So, there is a chance of some side effects…bone pain and flu like symptoms the most common….the rest too scary (and hopefully too unlikely to even bother mentioning!!). So I took the first ones tonight and then followed them with a couple of G&T’s….didn’t read whether alcohol was recommended with them …. oops!
So, off to bed now and hoping for a decent nights sleep. I haven’t been sleeping well recently. Lots of dreams. Possibly anxiety related although I don’t feel particularly anxious. Might succumb to another sleeping tablet to help though. Why fight it.
