Ocrevus infusion aftermath conclusion

Ocrevus infusion aftermath conclusion

Yesterday was a rough day. I was very uncomfortable and tired. It happens but the good news is I knew WHY it was happening. I slept a lot yesterday. I took a 2 hour nap on the couch with my fur babies on either side. Even with the nap I still went into bed at 9:30pm. I feel less fatigued today, I don’t feel that weight in my bones but my skin is still sensitive. I HATE steroids. This was such a small infusion of it too, I don’t get it, but I know the side effects to steroids and this certainly is it.

Kudos to me, it’s 9am I’m up and showered and dressed. My hair is drying naturally for now because let’s be real, I still can only do so much in a given time. I have no plans for the day which is probably a good thing, I still think I need to rest. I’m just happy to report it’s better than yesterday.

As for the rest of my weekend, I’m supposed to go out with my girlfriend for Sunday brunch for her birthday that was over a week ago. My daughter is home until Monday so even though she’s a social butterfly and in and out of the house, I get some time with her. My nursing aide starts full time on Monday 8-4. I’m going to start to de-clutter each area of my house with her help. Throw stuff out, thank you for your service. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

  1. Thank you for posting your post- reaction ! I had a similar experience after my first Infusion on Halloween ! Hope the second ( in less than a week ) will be different. I have never been on any DMT ( had MS for 36 years ), so, I hope I have made the right decision ! My neurologist basically said, it was /is up to me about whether to continue !

    1. That’s amazing you never needed a DMT until now. I found with the Ocrevus I was generally ok after the infusion maybe a little tired but ok. Now it’s one time which is nice. I never had a choice with DMT my MS was pretty intense right out of the gate. I think you just gave me a great blog post.
