Holidays and infusions

Return to contents page

If you are going away for one or two weeks holiday, you may wish to miss your infusions. It can be a bother taking the drugs and equipment, keeping them in a cool and sterile environment and infusing yourself in a strange environment. Take a holiday from infusions - it will make your holiday even more relaxing.

You then have two options: either miss them completely and continue as usual when you get back; or use up the missed infusions before and after you go away. Depending on how many bottles you miss, you can either infuse more frequently both in the week or two weeks on either side of your holiday or you can infuse more units in total in each infusion. Ask your doctor.
