I can't believe we're in June already!
Things have been slowly improving and I am starting to feel much better now. Last month Terry had his second covid vaccination and thankfully he didn't suffer from any side effects this time! He was rather poorly after the first one, so we were a little bit worried on how he would react to the second, but all was good!
Unfortunately due to my lack of iron, I've been suffering from bad migraines, has anyone got any suggestions of medication for migraines. I've tried many and they always say to me, take it as soon as one comes on... mine are always last time and I'm always too late! Any help and advice, would be great please!
Anyway now it's been 2 weeks since I had my IV iron, and I'm starting to feel the effects of it, I'm able to walk around a lot better now and I'm not as breathless. The IV iron went well for me, as in the cannula went in first time! They tried something new on me this time - they used ultrasound to find my vein and watched the screen, not my arm, as they inserted the needle. I thought it was quite painful as they were prodding around a lot, but they did manage to get in the vein first go. They also used a new cannula which can stay in the arm for max 27 days, this is great news for those who are like me, and hate having to have cannulas replaced often when staying in hospital!
