LR1234: Actually, my neurologist and Shared Solutions didn't think I should go off the Copaxone for my surgery.
Meredith: My husband recommended I start a protein drink regimen as a supplement. So far, I have found a rice based protein shake that is gluten free. Still need to read more about it to see if it would meet other nutritional requirements to fit in the Best Bet Diet. Then again, since I would consume it daily, that would totally blow the low rice consumption.
I have been repeatedly told by Shared Solutions to NOT stop any of the injection sites. My neurologist recommended that I play with my body fat areas. The problem is, my BMI is 19% and its a struggle to keep it there.
As of Friday, I stopped Copaxone. I've decided to go an alternative route and visit my acupuncturist to see what he can recommend. This decision is not one I made overnight and is something I've struggled with. The truth is though, I was scared and intimidated into starting something ASAP and Copaxone seemed like the least of all the evils presented to me.
Wishing you the best of luck!
