MIBG injection

Today Reba got her MIBG injection in preparation for her MIBG scan tomorrow. As you may remember the last time she had this injection 8 weeks ago she had an anaphylactic reaction which resulted in an ER admittance and a prescription for an Epi-Pen which we keep on us now.

Needless to say we were pretty nervous going into this again. This time we premeditated with Prednisone and Benadryl starting at 2am, then 8 am and 2 pm. The whole time during the injection there was a Doctor observing her. All the correct equipment was there this time, and the right size. They administered the injection through a pump over 9 minutes, waiting 15 minutes after the first 2 minutes were given. All of these changes made us feel more comfortable and Reba handled it very well. We are so relieved.

Tomorrow she has her scan.

Next Tuesday Reba will have a PET Scan and the following Wednesday an MRI- 3 anesthesias in 3 weeks! Busy, busy.

Then all this data from the scans will be considered and we will meet with our oncologist on the 28th to discuss the results and future.

Feeling silly on steroids…
