The PRRT infusion went according to plan yesterday. It made me feel sick and tired, but a little less so than the first time. The worst part is the amino acid IV. For whatever reason it really aggravates my hands and arms where the IV is and they ache horribly the whole time. Today is a little better.
I had a follow-up scan this morning, and will have another tomorrow morning. During that visit tomorrow the doctor will meet with me to discuss the results of all of these scans. I’m really looking forward to getting some definitive information about the effectiveness of this therapy.
For now I’m just hanging out at the hotel, trying to get some rest. I talked with two of the other PRRT patients this morning at the clinic. We’re all staying at the same hotel. It’s great to see and hear how others are doing, and to feed off each other’s enthusiasm about this process. I’ll post more tomorrow after meeting with the doctor.
