Some pain is very common with methotrexate (google Separation pain). It’s a very, strong and powerful drug and bleeding is common. It’s reassuring that you are not heavily soaking a pad every hour. However(!!!) if your pain is excruciating or beyond unbearable, or any aches and pains that doesn’t se...

Re: Help please

I can only think of possible pelvic adhesions? There’s always a chance of getting them after any abdominal / pelvic surgery. I think you should give the ward a call and tell them about this as I wasn’t in that much pain 7 weeks after surgery. I hope you feel better soon (hugs) x Posted too soon. I ...

I had my injection on Tuesday and this morning woke up in agony. Not sure if it's because I am constipated or that i am in extreme danger. I know I cant have...

I'm on day 13 now and it's worked really well. My levels went from 728 day 1 to 364 by day 4 and then down to 212 by day 7.
Yes it seems some people don't bleed at all as the body just reabsorbs it.
Fantastic news :D

Can I just ask people who have had this drug, does everyone experience bleeding or is it also working if you don't bleed? I'm on the morning of day 4 now following the injecti...
