I made progress.

30 Jan

I’ve been trying to get hold of the nurse who said she would put me on Victoza. She is one very elusive lady to get a hold of to say the least!

After some phone calls and messages and an argument with a receptionist who told me I never saw her at the surgery and she didn’t know her, I finally tracked her down.

She definitely exists and is so lovely. She said she had time to go through it with me then, even though I was on my way to the gym, I thought this would be more important (didn’t get to the gym).

She explained to me, while Victoza would be good for me Byetta has been showing to have a higher weight loss, the only problem with that is it is twice a day and has to be taken within 30 mins to 1 hour before food and can be bad with the side effects, but there is a newer version of it called, which is the same, but is only taken once a week and doesn’t come in a handy pen and has to be set up with vials and needles. She was happy for me to try either, but we decided I would give the Byduroen a go for a few weeks and see how it goes.

BydureonShe gave me the kit it comes in and showed me how to do it then I had a little practice, while the pen injection looks so easy, I don’t think this is too bad. There is powder and liquid that has to be mixed together before you inject it, but as this is a week long release you shouldn’t get the side effects of the twice a day one and it’s only once a week so you don’t have to do it too often.

I told her my appetite seems to have good and she said that is good news, if its like this on the Januvia then it should be even better on the Byduroen. I get the kit tomorrow, chemist didn’t have any in stock, I’m quite looking forward to it, not sure how I will feel when I’m sat there having to stick a needle in myself though! I don’t have a fear of needles at all, but knowingly stabbing myself with something sharp isn’t something I look forward to, even though I know imagining it is worse that actually doing it! I think I’m still going to have to talk myself into it lol.

I had a nice little surprise as I was leaving, I got on the scales and I have lost… 8kg! Woot about 17lbs I think, I was so happy, close to a stone and a half. Not a huge amount, but we did have Christmas too, so I am more than happy!

Back to the gym tomorrow.. more pain for me!
