Treatment

So an update on my adventures in bio-land...going well so far. Virtually no flaking now and skin getting back to its former smooth self. No new patches either! Damn big injectable though - 100ml in a self stabbing rubber stamp type thing!

Second dose administered today under supervision by the nurse. When I showed her how much it had improved after just the one dose, she furiously scribbled (well, tappety tapped onto her iPad) some deets...she was pretty impressed with the improvement...It's still a long way off, but Psoriasis - I am getting to the point where I will be able to laugh in your face...for a while at least! :D

Sid, does one get the bio quarterly? or do you get it on a permanent basis? Every month? For how long do you have to take the bio and for how long do you need to stay off it?

Right now, I’ve had the first 3 dosages funded so my specialist will need to apply for further funding which shouldn’t be a problem given the positive results I’ve shown so far.
It is administered as follows:
Dose 1: week 0
Dose 2: week 4
Dose 3 will be week 12 (8 weeks after the second dose). Now I’ve been told two different things. The official site says all subsequent doses are 8 weeks apart where the administering nurse said 12 weeks, so there will be a quick call to make sure today!

I didn't realise how much having psoriasis actually affected me till it started clearing...
