I began my follistim injections last night. Follistim is an FSH injection. (folicle stimulating hormone) This is the highest dosage that I have taken so far. I can't lie, the injection was rough. The medicine stays in the fridge and it's very cold. My dear friend Katy gave some great advise about warming up the container before injecting it, and unfortunately, I forgot. I was overwhelmed but I wasn't sure if I was using the correct needle. It did not feel good. It was so cold I could feel it burning for 20 minutes after the shot. I also have to do the lupron shot every night but that one is easy. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday and they will be looking to see if I have had any growth. I have been having some killer hot flashes. My hormones are so crazy. I have woken up the past two nights and I was socking wet with sweat. (It's a lovely feeling!) Thanks for checking in on us!
