What To Expect on Your First Infusion Visit

Your first infusion visit can be a new experience, but we strive to make it as seamless and comfortable as possible. Here's what you should be prepared for: 

  1. Comfort is Key: Feel free to bring along any comfort items that will help you relax during your infusion. This could include blankets, pillows, or electronic devices like tablets to keep you entertained. 
  2. Duration Varies: The duration of your infusion will depend on the type of medication you are receiving. Some infusions may take only a short while, while others may require a longer stay. Our team will provide you with an estimate of how long your infusion is expected to take. 
  3. Driving After Infusion: Patients often ask whether it's safe to drive after their infusion. As a general precaution, we recommend that you arrange for transportation to and from your first appointment. If you are comfortable and able to drive after your initial visit, you may choose to do so for subsequent appointments. 
  4. Eating Before Your Infusion: Whether you choose to eat before your infusion is entirely up to you. Some patients prefer to have a light meal beforehand, while others may prefer to abstain. It's essential to listen to your body and do what feels right for you. If you have any concerns or questions about dietary recommendations before your infusion, our team is here to provide guidance and support. 
  5. Hydration: Staying hydrated before and during your infusion can help make the process more comfortable. We recommend drinking plenty of fluids in the hours leading up to your appointment. 
  6. Medication Review: Please make sure that your medication list is updated with the front staff. Your list should include all medications, vitamins, and supplements. This information will ensure your treatment plan is tailored to your specific needs and minimizes any potential interactions. 
  7. Comfortable Clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows easy access to your arms for infusion. This will help make your experience more relaxed and convenient.
  8. Contact Information: Ensure that our team has your current contact information, including phone number and emergency contact, to reach you during and after your infusion if needed.
