latest follow up


Retrospective entry:
I went for follow up today and getting my 5th time of 6 months course of intravenous Immunoglobulin (antibody) to boost my immune status. Not to say that I never appreciated how painful to be poked a few times for IV line but getting 3 times attempt make me more understand how painful it was especially when I had it accidentally being poked on the sensory nerve on the wrist! It felt like being struck by an electric current...
Owing to my poor lung function performance (no improvement), the hematologist feels that I should be on further gradual tapering dose of steroid. And together with Glivec which may depressed the T cell (white blood cell), I must really caution during these time of potential H1N1 exposure. I was being reminded to take anti viral to Influenza should I developed flu symptoms.
