2nd half of the 1st full Ocrelizumab dose today. Having been on either injections or oral meds for the last god knows how many years I heard something amazing from my nurse.
As a creature of habit I idly asked how frequently the required blood tests happened. The reply was, ‘oh nothing for 5 months” I nearly fell over with the shock.
This means I am have complete freedom from of movement for this time. The sense of liberation is hard to comprehend. If I want to do something abroad – say working – I am no longer tied over blood tests, prescription repeats, carting the appropriate meds around, setting endless alarms to remind me to take them and so on.
From a straight quality of life standpoint, this is a-mazing for me. If you’ve ever been tied to the hospital and the UK you’ll get it.
Free healthcare. What’s not to like?
