Hi Steven and everyone -
I am the person whom Steven was referring to. I had HiCy twice (July 08 and May 09). I am now approaching 2 yrs post hicy treatment #2. And knock wood (please, do it! ha ha) - I am doing GREAT.
I had a baby 5 months ago....and NO relapse! A lot of women have horrific relapses postpartum, but I haven't. I've been symptom free since the second treatment! I think maybe it ought to be a 2 phase treatment, but I'm not a doctor, I don't even play one on tv.
I was also treated the first time within months of my diagnosis (dx Jan 2008, 1st treatment July 2008). My MS was VERY aggressive. I went from "normal" one day to needing a cane or walker within months. A month or so after the first treatment, I got rid of my cane and walker! Haven't ever needed it since.
I stand by this treatment wholeheartedly - it changed and possibly saved my life - but maybe the people whom it can help are certain ones (dependent on types of lesions, presentation, length of time having the disease, etc.).
I wish everyone luck!!
