Hi! I'm a patient of Dr. Aleta. May clinic din siya sa St. Luke's Global. You can call the Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology center to get her sched there. :)

Thanks sisilly!

Nag punta na ako kay dr abong eh.
Kasi mas mura yun Lit nya ata compare kay aleta.
Kaya doon na ako pumunta. convenient sana ang global din  for me.
Medyo mahal din ata yun lit sa global?

may additional lab pa pinagawa sa akin.( Apas,ana , lat tapos na)

Immunodeficiency Panel 1
-cbc w/platelet
-RPR (Rapid plasma screening test for syphilis)
-HBsAg ( Hepatitis B)
-Anti HCV ( Hepatitis C)
-HIV
- Malarial Smear Test
-CMV-Igm ( cytomegalo Virus)
FT4 and TSH ( Thyroid Test)
Anti-TG and TPO ( Thyroid test)

lahat ng test na eto umabot din ng 20k :(

Mahal talaga. :) And that's just the beginning. I thought before that the tests and the first trimester would be the most expensive. Boy was I wrong. I'm in the third trimester now and hanep sa gastos din. Someone said before: butasan ng bulsa. So very true. :) But all worth it for the baby!

Sis wat_evah, sis it takes 1 week pa bago magsubside ang itchiness and redness minsan nga kahit lagpas na 1 week itchy pa din eh.

depende yan sis sa reaction ng body mo, hindi basehan ang physical reaction para masabi na effective sayo ang LIT.

hi sis, sa akin kasi sabi ni dra. A ay tuesday tanggalin so after 3days ng LIT ko yun nung tinanggal ko hindi ko pa binasa siguro mga 2 to 3 days pa kasi natatakot ako baka mamaga.  Ganyan din yung sa akin sa injection site mapula at matigas sya at super kati kahit 1 week na pero bawal kamutin sis ha baka magkasugat, yung ibang sis dito nilalagyan nila ng bandage pag matutulog para sure na hindi makamot pero ako never ko naman na nakamot kasi super praning ako pag natutulog nun ni hindi ko nga dinadaganan at naka patong pa sa unan yung arms ko eh.

Important sis never mo lagyan ng kahit anong ointment o gamot para mawala yung kati yan ang bilin ni doc.

hi sis wat_evah...ganyan din yung sakin.  yes, bawal sya mabasa at mailawan ng 2 days.  kaya dapat talaga sya nakacover.  ang lymphocytes daw kasi sensitive din sa light.

ako sa mga prior LIT ko, tinatanggal ko sya tuesday na.  pero i think yung 3rd ko ata yun na sobrang maga pa din, wednesday ko na tinanggal to be safe.  nakakamot ko kasi sya pag nawawala sa isip ko e.  :)

yung shots ko din nangingitim pa after and nagiging mas dark pa pag nagexercise ako.  parang kagat ng bampira.  :)  pero ngayon wala na yung marks ko nung shots ko last September.  Ang natitira na lang yung booster ko last week.  :)
think COUNTRY!

will have my first LIT session tom kay dra a., lots of you say it hurts so it leaves me thinking na hahaha, kasing sakit ba siya ng skin test?
i'm chinese kasi so may nag aadvise sa akin na it would be better if my donor will be pinoy, pero si hubby disagrees with it, conservative kasi e, so dra a said to try mga 3 sessions muna if nothing happens then she would suggest na change donor na lang, what would i expect on my first LIT?

Just had my Lit injection yesterday kay Dra A.
6 injection , 2 donor sya.
my cough and colds pa si hubby kaya di sya nag donor pa.
next week ulit Lit ko 2 donor ulit , pero pag wala na cough and colds pwede din si hubby mag donate na.

Di naman sobra sakit , carry ko naman ...masmasakit yun maglabas ng pambayad madugo talaga.
