Ah, those infamous words often heard in the nurses treatment room!
To start on my Humerin injections I need to be free from any bug or virus, so in preparation I have had to book myself in to get my jabs done. Now normally the Flu and Pneumonia jabs are only dished out to the young, the elderly and the infirm, however in my case they have made an exception!
I was supposed to be having just the Pneumonia jab today, but a cheeky grin gets you a long way in this world, so I ended up having both jabs done. The nurse did warn me that the Pneumonia jab may make me feel like I’ve been punched in the arm, and she was not wrong, my left arm is completely numb at the moment. The right arm, that had the Flu jab in it feels just like normal.
So, now that those are taken care of I’ve got to contact my Bio-nurse at the Dermatology unit of the Hospital, just to give her an update and discuss when the best time to get a blood test done would be. That’s another pre-requisite to starting the course, a blood test to ensure that I am indeed well.
Then, all being well, I have a home visit on 19th for my first series of injections and instruction on how to do it myself. This was on that date due to not having my jabs scheduled for completion until the 16th, so this could get brought forward.
