I'm two and a half weeks post campath and all my ms symptoms are out on the surface. I still have zero white blood cells and my body is trying to 'shake off the shock' of being zapped with a chemo drug. I rejoice in the fact that RIGHT NOW there are no b cells or t cells attacking my myelin. My clinical staff and doctor warned me that I would feel worse before feeling better. I have no new tingles or weakness or any other new ms symptoms but all the old ones are there with a vengeance.
Every once in a while though, I feel these bursts of fatigue free time. They don't last super long but they happen. My clinic's research coordinator said that those spells would begin to last longer. Yay! I can't wait.
Friday is my first post campath full exam with my blinded and unblinded doctors. I'll ask about my edss as compared to the pre-campath visit but I don't expect it to be much different this time. Maybe even a little worse.
Come on plasticity...I'm counting on you to help me out.
