My Benlysta (Belimumab) Journey - Part One!
Posted Nov 24 2011 7:25am
I think it's safe to say I've officially started my Benlysta journey! (I hope they appreciate all the free advertising we're giving them)
My doctor's office called to say my insurance company approved me. Yaaaaaay I said in my mind as I lay in the bed sick lol. Yaaaaaaay changed to nervousness in 3.5 seconds.
So how much is the copay for each visit.......
Which doctor's office do I have to drive to for the IV infusions.......
What should I eat and drink in order for my tiny veins to be accessible.......
After a few seconds of nervousness, the thoughts became positive again.
I was approved.
I have health insurance!
I might be able to function without this painsomnia, my poor bones, pass-me-your-germs-please Prednisone!
Okay so I'm excited about this new chapter in my lupie life! I know it's not a cure. But I'm hoping it'll give me 2 or 3 years of "normal". I'll be sure to blog all of my crazy emotions.
1st infusion: December 15th.
