I have completed my second IV Cytoxan infusion for Myasthenia Gravis at Vanderbilt's 100 Oaks Medical Infusion Center. We arrived around 11:00 AM for my noon appointment and checked in early.
The treatment procedure was the same as last time. First, I had blood work and an urinalysis. Second, I was premedicated with Tylenol, Benadryl, Zofran. and then hydrated with a normal sodium IV solution for about thirty minutes. Third, I received one gram of Cytoxan through a one-hour IV drip along with more saline. Finally, after about thirty minutes of more hydration I was released to go home.
I have had no bad effects from the Cytoxan. My condition is about the same as it was before I began the chemotherapy.
Thanks again for the prayers and support
