I get mabtherapy infusions for rheumatoid arthritis as a hospital day patient, it's given over 5-8hours one day and you return to the hospital in 2 weeks for the second round. This infusion is given to me every 6 - 8 months, depending on my condition at the time.

It takes me approximately one week to recover from each cycle.

As I am self employed it was difficult in the beginning as I was out unable to organise work dates around hospital visits. Now I'm on sick leave makes hospital visits easier but doesn't help financially.

It is important to get all the info before starting mabtherapy, it's not an easy treatment on your system but if you work around side effects, hospital appointments you get a good quality of life.
