Well as I mention the stimulation process has begun. I am past day one of four with the stimulation shots. There really isn’t anything to report really. They come in at 11pm and 3am every night and give a little shot under the skin. I barely even felt it. Not sure if it is because the needle is so small or the huge muscles on my arms. LOL I didn’t have any of the side effects some people report like heavy sweating and aches in the bones. I am usually fortunate when it comes to side effects and hopefully that will continue throughout the treatment.
One cool note is a friend I have been chatting with on the HSCT forum on facebook was admitted today to start her treatment so I have another person I can speak English with that is going through the stuff I went through this past week.
So far it has been a great experience. For people considering Dr. Fedorenko to be your doctor for this, you can not go wrong. He is an awesome doctor that truly loves his patients and does everything in his power to make sure you feel comfortable. i was a little nervous about having a non-US doctor, but when you talk to him about the procedure you and hear his passion and knowledge come out.
So that is it for now. Once again a big Mahalo for following along. I will keep updating as things move alone. Hope you’re enjoying the ride as much as I am!
