Starting treatment with Kevzara: My journey
Good morning everyone.
Well, yesterday was my first dose of Kevzara and day one of my taper down to 15mg of prednisone. We’ll see how that works out. My doc prefers this medication over steroids. I’m very blessed that my insurance covered all the cost of this medication. I don’t even want to know how much it is without insurance.
Now the main issue for me is: Why do I have splenomegaly (enlarged spleen). My doc did a CT scan because I have muscle wasting a bit more quickly than I should, and he stated that PMR could be a symptom of cancer. I get the results yesterday too (Not a great mental health day for me), and he referred me to Hematology. I asked if the PMR caused my enlarged spleen, or my enlarged spleen cause my PMR (I had a flashback to my Anatomy and Physiology classes on the spleen). He stated that he really didn’t know. It’s basically which came first, the chicken or the egg scenario.
Has anyone else experienced this?
