This past Thursday, I went for my Remicade treatment. Part of the way I stay healthy and mobile is immunosuppression therapy. This one of the two main medications I take. I sit in a recliner with an IV drip in my arm for two hours every six to eight weeks. Remicade is a biologic medication, meaning it is made of living cells, specifically mouse proteins. No wonder our cat can't stay away from me! In conjunction with Remicade, once a week I take Methotrexate tablets, a low dose of chemotherapy. There are serious side effects associated with these medications, but they were risks I was willing to take to have a more normal life. Prior to immunosuppression therapy, I was unable to straighten one of my legs without cortisone injections and could not walk without assistance of the walls and furniture. I also had lesions where my psoriasis had flared severely. With as much walking as we do in the City, this girl needs to be as mobile as possible!
