Well folks yesterday I heard from the hospital and I'm to start my Tolizumab infusions on Tuesday! Initial reaction 'Yay' :D followed sometime later by 'Yikes' :o . I'm so pleased to at last be trying something new as it's been such a long time since I felt 'in control' of Arthur but I'm also worried In case I put too much hope on it and it doesn't work!!

So advice from you lovely lot please - should it be Yay or Yikes?

Kate xx

    Kate....all I could think of before I started mine was the thought of no more flares, when I had the first one I have to say I did feel a benefit. I don't know if it was psychological or what but when the next one went in I wondered how I'd got through the previous few years, I still on occasions get the hurty joints but nothing like before so it's a YAY and good luck from me

    I think I'd advise to proceed happily with caution :D
