Believe me, if Tovaxin works, you will hear all about it from me. I have stabilized somewhat in the last few weeks, but I will know if something is working or not (I freakin' hope). Like Tim pointed out, we will probably notice nothing for the first two treatments. The third is the one that seems to 'tip the balance' over to the good side. With that being said and Revimmune seeming to work to some significant degree on everyone, I am going to be paying very close attention and will not hesitate to pull the trigger if after the third injection I have more progression.
When there seems to be something that is working, I can't allow myself to further the cause of science by getting worse. I mean there's only so much altruism left in me after this shitty ass year
. But for real, I hope they both work great and people can have a viable choice about treatments that they don't have to keep their fingers crossed to hope they work. Being on a CRAB is a rather interesting deal. I mean you feel like you are doing SOMETHING actively, but then you read up on it and unless you are one of the lucky 29% you are sort of jabbing yourself and paying huge co-pays for nothing. And to top it off, you just really can't tell if it's working for you or not. I know that's heaping all the "bad" stuff on at once on something that exists where there was nothing before, but basically in terms of treatment, it just sucks to be us!
