I'll have to talk more about my smart injections next week. Why? Because I need at least one more under my belt to remember what it was like.
I don't think that the process was quiet, and that may be what threw me off the most with the first one. The association between the discomfort (a strange kind of pain) in the injection area, that is obviously related to the mechanical noise being held in my hand, resting against my thigh.
And, I hit a vascular area.
Does that sound complicated?
That's how I feel.
With the Rebismart, you can adjust the speed in which the needle pierces your skin, the depth in which it sits in your tissue, the speed of the medication coming down the needle, and how long the needle sits in your tissue after the medication has drained. There is a lot to customize.
On a different note...
I had my first appointment with my new GP doctor this week...and I like her. She has ordered an MRI of my brain! She couldn't believe that I haven't had one since April 2007. She orders her patients, who live with MS, one MRI per year. She believes that it is important to know what is going on, what's coming.
Have I found a partner in looking after my health?
