Year review

I had my one-year-on-tysabri follow-up with my neurologist last week. During the visit he reviewed my MRI and he was quite pleased with the results. He saw no new or enhancing lesions on my brain. And I'm not showing any signs of an allergy or development of antibodies. That effectively means my MS is in remission (because of tysabri, I'm not treating it holistically). That is the best news I could get! The damage that has been done thus far is irreversible, but it is minimal, and with the drug stopping things in their tracks, it looks like the hope of (somewhat) normal life returns. Oh happy day! Now lets just hope this stuff isn't like L-dopa (the parkinsons drug that over time loses effect).
