Hip Replacement Surgery

Hello all. My bf has MS and was on prednisone for years. It ate away his joints and now at age 38 he needs hip replacement surgery. We are worried about how someone with MS recovers from this major surgery. Has anyone here had hip replacement surgery?

He cannot walk a step hardly anymore and his neurologist said that MRI's show that it is not the MS but the deteriorating hip that is causing the ...

Getting Ready for Stanford

I noticed that Mark and I sort of hijacked Holly's thread by discussing the medical records he should take. So, I decided to start a new thread to help those who are on their way to Stanford. I think having the tips and suggestions in one place will help those who are on their way. This is also a good place to ask the general questions......

Here are some topics that could be (and have ...

Got an email from Dr. Kerr regarding my MRI on Thursday.

"got it. the MRI looks great Chris. The MS is completely and totally inactive. Good news!!"

That is the email I got from the good doctor verbatim.

So it definitely looks like the treatment in addition to the Copaxone has cured the Auto Immune side of MS. I am going to use the word cure until I pop something active or new again.

I am a believer this may be a venous issue so even ...

Neurologist Visit

I had a regular six month visit with my neurologist yesterday.

My doctor could not stop talking about how positive the outlook was for the new oral drugs coming along. He expects to see one if not more out by the Fall of this year.

We started talking about vitamin d, and he said he had to prepare for a talk he was giving just a little while ago and he started saying how good ...

Sharon's post op CCSVI

What an adventure!! My "bucket list" (you know the movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman), did not have this adventure listed on it, but it does have "fight the MS with everything positive". Even though I feel pretty crappy right now, I think I can put a check mark alongside that entry.

THE TESTS The tests are basically the same thing we have all been through before except for the breathing exercise in the ...
