Hi everyone, I am asking for your prayer. I have severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for many years now and have been using a class of drugs which suppress ones immune system. They have lost their effectiveness over time (I can no longer work or function normally) and my Doctor wants to put me on a new medication called Retuxin. This is a drug that is used for treating cancer but has also shown good results for some with RA. However, the side effects are a bit scary and can be potentially life threatening.. The drugs I am on now have similar potential side effects as well but the shelf life is much shorter with them because they are a weekly injection. The new RX delivered through an IV infusion will suppress my immune system for 4-6 months at a time. So, I am asking for your prayers because while I know that I need to trust my Doctor in this matter and be obedient I do have some fears about it. Just going off of my old medications and taking a new one will be painful because the effects of these medications can take months sometimes to begin working. As well because I will have to stop taking my current medication for two weeks before my new one is administered. I am not looking forward to this transition. There is no guarantee that the new med will even work. I know that God has the say in these things and that I need to trust Him. So if you don't mind can you please say a word of prayer for me regarding this?
