Hopefully My Last Infusion

This is still speculation at this point, but I believe I will have my last Tysabri infusion this Wednesday. Which is good and bad. Bad because I've been doing so well with ZERO relapses since starting it. Good because I loathe needles and there is (and pretty much always been) a 1-in-118 chance that I will develop PML due to my Tysabri treatment, and you do not want that! Those odds are a bit too risky for me!

I am at the point where I will soon see if my life will continue as normal or a new (sub)standard will be applied. I've enjoyed my life this far, even with the MS diagnosis; let's hope it stays that way! Only time will tell how my MS responds to my new medication.

Wish me luck.


UPDATE 07 MAY:
Yeah, I don't know if I posted this early in the morning or what, but clearly that wasn't my last infusion.

Barts and The London

Has bad news for me.

NO TREATMENT FOR MS-related memory problems, went the headline of the article.

Guh, now I've got to hope some scientist comes up with a fix for Memory Symptoms...errr...Multiple Sclerosis.

Now I have no hope that my wife will stop blaming something I use to treat my MS for my memory problems, instead of the MS itself. NO HOPE! DAMN YOU MS!

This was the chart my neuro showed me, or at least something very similar. My number 1 in 118, which is why I am switching to Techfidera.
