Australian treated by this method in Sydney !

G'day all ..deluxe here..

long time aussie lurker here with no official dx.

( limboland they call it I think )

Anyway I read this article in local abc news, this guy had some pretty good results, shame you have to be almost dead to recieve it .

From reading the article I think he was treated on compassionate grounds.

The poor guy was 20 and almost died. Good on him for getting this treatment. ...

cytoxan user with questions

Hello forum! I see a lot of posts about the hicy dosage and I don't believe that what I'm doing is considered that.

I initially started almost 5 months ago with a regimen of cytoxan once a month for six months along with steroids that would get my WBC down to 2. At the three month point I would start taking Copaxone.

I have yet gotten my WBC count down to 2 and am up ...

3 month post hicy (round 2) update

Hi again everyone,

Well, it is with sadness that I report that things have been on a downslide for the last two weeks. My previous update, I was on top of the world and living without much limitations or restrictions. In the last week or so, I have become symptomatic to a somewhat severe degree.

Tomorrow I will go for my 3 month MRI follow-up and maybe we'll know more - maybe there will be ...

My update!

Hi everyone,

Sorry, I haven't been around lately... (and geez, I missed a lot - especially the CCSVI stuff....gonna head over to that board in a minute).

I came home from my second round on May 26th. The treatment went off without a hitch. Once again, I could swear that chemo wasn't in the IV, as I didn't get sick at all. The first night, after the treatment, I was almost nauseous - but not ...

CCSVI before HiCy

Hi,

Mel had hicy before having stents placed. I wonder if having stents placed and then trying to apply for hicy might not be allowed.

I wonder if Chris or Mel could have a quick word with Dr Kerr to find out if they would ever accept patients that have stents. (I wonder because of the risk of blood clotting whilst receiving revimmune)

If that is the case maybe I should consider Revimmune b4 CCSVI. ...

Dosage?

What is the dosage given of the cyclophosphamide?
I found this article online and was wondering if the dosage is similar.

The objective of this case report is to document the possibility that immunoablative doses of cyclophosphamide may provide a long-term remission of multiple sclerosis (MS). We report the case of a 48-year-old woman with definite MS diagnosed in 1994 who has been in complete remission since a dose of 3800 mg of cyclophosphamide was ...
