the standard here is 26 infusions in 52 weeks with blood test before each infusion. Most get at least one CT every 3 months. They need to test to see if there is progression or something new and if so then no more infusions. They watch your BUN and Creatinine close and ALT, AST and TSH. Blood test results 15 minutes, ONC consult about 15-20 minutes then get a chair. It takes about 30 minutes to get the meds and then 1 hr. for the infustion. It may be quicker where you are but the place I go does up to 200 people a day with chemo etc. I bring my big Ipad with ear phones and a big lunch. A lot of us have a port..
