What is LIT?
It's Lympho.cyte Immuno.therapy. And it's quite painful. One doctor thinks this will help because I have low B and T cells that aren't protecting the embryo when it's in my body thereby letting the natural killer cells take over.
Here's the download on the treatment:
- They take 18 vials of B's blood the morning of the procedure. He can't eat or drink anything but water before, and has to avoid fatty foods and dairy the night before.
- I go in a few hours later and they inject the cells right under my skin so that my lymph nodes absorb it.
- It's what I imagine bee stings feeling like though I've never been stung before so I don't know. All I know is that they do it EIGHT times - 4 in each arm. And that by the 6th one, I actually said 'f*ck' and then apologized to the nurse.
