Let’s get caught up on Lizze’s current status and condition, post day 2 of the headache infusion. Right now it’s a lot tougher to keep caught up on this blog. I have 3 sick special needs kids and my wife having a 3 day long procedure to break her almost 2 month old migraine. She came home yesterday about 1:15pm, sick to her stomach from the meds and looking pretty rough. She slept for awhile until I had to run to the grocery store.
Basically, it was explained to us that it would have taken many months of oral medications to get the levels to where they will be after the third and final infusion. I would imagine that takes it’s toll on the body. But the process is designed to break the migraine that has otherwise been untreatable. So drastic times call for drastic measures. The results of day one: migraine went from 8/10 to 7/10.
Day 2 brought similar results at a similar price. Migraine meds made her pretty sick. Results from day 2:
Migraine went from 7/10 to 5/10.
Thursday is the third and final infusion. The goal is to get of down to a 1 or a 2. Hopefully everything will work.
