I filmed myself doing Hizentra!

I am a terrible camera person. If I'd known I was going to catch my own image, I'd have left the makeup on and arranged some better lighting because I am vain. ;)

But here is the video, in all it's glory. Enjoy!

The password is hizentra.

Wow @Remy. Thanks so much. I had no idea now it worked!

How many lessons did you get before you felt you could do it on your own?

Does the infusion tube have 4 needles? Do they hurt when you put them in?

Does the pump only make that sound to start off?

As you know, I may be headed for IVIG or scig so his is really helpful

Cool to hear your voice. Where are puppies?

The nurse came 3 times, I think, to help me. She would be appalled at my less than sterile technique. To be fair, I am usually better about wiping things down with alcohol wipes. I got intimidated by filming! LOL.

They come with all numbers of needles. You can put 20-25 mL into any one site. So my 50 mL dose could go into two sites and then I would have a two needle infusion set. But it's easier for me to put it into three sites. Each one swells less and then if there is a problem with one leaking, I can just shut it off and carry on with my remaining two sites.

When I was doing the high dose, I had 4 needle sets.

Does the pump only make that sound to start off?
Yes, just when it starts.

As you know, I may be headed for IVIG or scig so his is really helpful

They were here! Bad sterile technique but their hair is everywhere so whatever...

It's SCIG...the subQ version of IVIG.

I do have hypogammaglobulinemia with deficiencies in subclasses 1 and 3.
