MS drugs POST angioplasty???

Postby lucky125 » Thu Dec 24, 2009 10:36 am

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!

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

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.

I stopped it all. I was on Copaxone. I jumped into this with both feet.
Treated by Dake 10/19/09, McGuckin 4/25/11 and 3/9/12- blockages in both IJVs, azy, L-iliac, L-renal veins. CCSVI changed my life and disease.

As you may have realized from reading these forums, a better question would be "MS drugs before surgery?" or "MS drugs at all?". ;-)
