Bad news - MRI results


Had MRI this afternoon. Blood/lab work yesterday.

Blood/urine is clean - except mildly anemic (nothing new there).

MRI shows new growth lesions on the left side of brain in the white matter, going across several tracks in the brain. It is enhanced. Other lesions are stable, no improvement. That was the stat reading, full report to follow on Monday.

Needless to say I'm devastated.

I really can't think of a title for this post.

I haven't been posting much lately because I have had non-MS related issues to deal with in life. All of you here have been so supportive and helpful since I was diagnosed, I feel like you guys are my on-line family, so I want to share what's been going on.

A few days before Halloween, my longtime (almost 23 years) live-in girlfriend, Di Ann, ended her life with a gun. I was present when she ...

Long term outcome of AHSCT

Its specially interesting because the the trial included SPMS patiens with active deterioration before treatment.

Medium duration of disease was 36 months (15–156), and medium attacking interval time was 6.5 months.

Does this mean the had MS for an average of 36 month (this would be a short time for a transition from RRMS to SPMS) or does the time refer to since when they were diagnosed as SPMS?

I also wonder what is ...

The List of Questions

How long did it take a doctor to diagnosis you? I was doing some research and it stated that it takes 6 month to diagnosis MS to be sure, is this a myth or no, cause I was dianose within a month ( had MRI met doctor he told me I had ms, did a spinal tab to confirm) with only one attack and no repeat attack at all since my diagnosis nearly 6 months ...

Long-Acting 4-AP following HiCy

Chris,
Are you going to try the 4-AP? I'm going to ask for a script next week during my visit to Hopkins. There's a pharmacy in California, Leiter's Pharmacy, which people on-line have claimed to be getting the long acting version compounded from. I will give them a call, or e-mail them to find out. I need more functionality than I have right now to take care of my kids.

Off the shelf stems........

This company whose website is here

http://www.osiristx.com/

is creating an off the shelf mesenchymal stem cell product. The website is interesting and they have stage II/III trials going in Crohn's and graft vs host diseases with fast track status granted already.

Apparently they screen donors carefully and then harvest and grow the stem cells from these healthy people in the lab for donation to others.

Radiologically Isolated Syndrome in MS

A new study published online in this week's Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, reports that a third of people who underwent an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) for other brain-related problems, but whose scans also showed abnormalities suggestive of MS, went on to develop the chronic disease within an average of about five years.

The research raises medical and ethical questions that genetic researchers and patients have bandied about for ...
