Now my doctors are trying to get my on Hydroxyurea like hardcore. I’m still scared about it. I know some people have used it with lots of great results, but those side effects are no joke—AND NOT BEING ABLE TO HAVE CHILDREN?? That is some crazy shit.
Well, the main thing is that if you conceive while on Hydroxyurea, your child will have birth defects. I’m not even sure I want children in the future, but not having that option because of sickle cell is something I’m not willing to take.
So there goes another reason why I won’t take Hydroxyurea. I’m hoping that taking a mix of Fagara, Nicosan and Arginine will be the right combo for me. My mom is gonna get me the fagara root and I still have to figure out where I’m going to get Nicosan from, maybe I’ll pick it up when I go to Nigeria this summer.
Hope you are having a great weekend…I’m going to work 3 nights in a row and then have 6 days off…wish me luck!
