The first batch of Kill Betty Juice has been administered. My ear is leaking. Again.
We were GO for the study yesterday, and I received my first set of infusions. It took… long. Nivo takes 1 hour, then there’s a half hour saline flush, then Ippi takes 1.5 hours. We arrived at the infusion center at 2:30, it took until 3:30 for the drugs to arrive, and I didn’t get removed from the IV until a little after 7 p.m. So much our worrying about hitting rush hour traffic on the way home.
No side effects yet, which is normal. But my ear is acting up.
On the way home (about two hours after the infusions ended because we had dinner before heading out), I started experiencing horrible nerve pain in my ear. When I woke up this morning, my ear was clogged and more fluid was leaking out (and still is). I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but I’m waiting to hear back from the surgeon who treated the infection in April and the research nurse just in case. At least the pain is gone again for now.
Scream with: Gah!
