Well we're back from Bristol (came back same day) from Kayleigh having her steroid injections under GA. It wasn't nice as she cried being put to sleep and woke up in a lot of pain
Her face is still sore but it's easier now as she's not lying down.
They ended up doing both wrists, knees and both sides of Jaw and her right hip. The plaster for that is in a really odd place didn't expect them to go in from that angle dread to think of the length of that needle **shudders**
Her right side of face is still puffy looking as are her wrists. Her knees seem to be smaller and I can't tell about the hip.
Still haven't been told the full results from her MRI but they did say they were sad it was in her neck and they can't touch that area with steroid injections and her jaw quite badly. They were even more worried that after being on methatrexate for 7 months she's still got "active" arthritis. They didn't want to do any more than those joints (got the feeling they wanted to do more) but said it would overload her as this is a lot of joints and she's only 4.
Just spoke with our consultant here and told her everything that had happened and that Bristol wanted to speak with her before adding different meds, they still want her on MTX but adding something else to the mixture but I can't remember the name she said but sounded worried on the phone about this drug :?
Thankfully she's got none of the side effects that she had with the last GA but they made sure she got all the meds before they work her up as they realised that she was in more pain this time and her stomach if fragile at the best of times. She said she will call mne back on Monday or Tuesday once she's spoken with Bristol to discuss what's going to happen.
