Full time traveling in the US while on monthly Entyvio infusions.


Fri, September 04, 2020 5:11 PM

Hello Folks,

I am brand new to this forum.  I am currently recieving Entyvio by infusion once a month.  My husband and I are full time RV'ers as of September 30.  I am trying to line up infusions in various states, but one needs a doctor to sign off on the nursing portion in order to receive the infusion at an infusion suite.  Apparently, per the medical people I have been contacting,  I am the first person to need this in various states as most people who travel go from summer to winter in one place or the other.  Example: Michigan and Florida.  I understand that one could establish a doctor in both places.  We intend to move around more.  I can't believe there aren't other people who require this and travel.  So...does anyone out there have any advice or something that has helped you?  If I can't get this figured out, I would be forced to fly to one of 3 states I am aware of where I could get the infusion...monthly...or not be able to travel.  I appreciate any time anyone has to offer advice.

SIncerely,

Deb
