Please forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere. I am not great with the search feature on this forum.
For those of you who have been lucky enough to have angioplasty, what has been your post-op regimen as far as disease modifying drugs? Have your neurologists been a part of the decision-making process?
I am particularly interested in Tysabri. It works by preventing T cells from crossing the BBB. If I were to have my veins opened up, do I want to prevent T cells from getting to all of that built up iron?
I realize that this is a wonderful problem to be considering. But one cannot have too much information!
I'd say it's about 50/50. Some of us keep taking them, but some of us don't. I quit all DMD's as they're called and opted to take LDN. So it's not like I'm taking nothing, but I was on Tysabri before my procedure.
