Has Anyone Recieved Infusions For Thier Ankylosing Spondilitis

My Rheumatoligist has suggested that get in infusionssf Siponi Aria? I am going to get my booster next week then I have to wait 2 weeks before I start the infusions

I hope your Thanksgiving went well. I had the first infusion followed by one two weeks after that. Then I had two more, eight weeks apart. I don't have problems with my veins- I am sorry you do. When I have the infusions they last 30-45 minutes. A nurse is there the entire time (except once when the nurse left for five minutes). It might be too early to know if Simponi is working. I think it takes up to six months. Right now I would say things are the same. I hope this helps. Don't be discouraged because I haven't noticed any differences yet. It takes a lot for anything to affect my body.

Good Morning Sister, hope you had a pain free Thanksgiving it is so nice to hear from you. I was thinking the infusions would start after the first one. Do you go every month ? I sure don't like needles I even have a hard time getting my vaccines. My veins are very small so they always have a hard time when they draw blood. Are you feeling any relief yet. How long do the sessions last. Does you Dr check in on you? Sorry all the questions

Humira didn't work for me so I started Simponi Aria IV. I have had 3-4 infusions. They go well. I am waiting to see if it works. If you have any questions about it, please let me know.
