This is very true. The procedure comes with heavy risks and long term serious side-effects. I'm hugely glad it exists and people are benefiting from it but it is a serious decision. Good luck either way but don't rush into anything.
I said the same exact thing 2 weeks ago and got jumped on and lead to believe THIS chemo is not as bad.
It is a serious decision. part of me thinks.. hey I am not doing bad with my MS, it seems to be under control after all these years, this could make it worse in the long run and put me into early menopause leaving me miserable and regretting my decision. on the other hand I think what if I dont go through with this and then I end up disabled or SPMS. Again I might regret the fact i didnt do this.
it's so hard to know what to do. but I dont see any progress in treatments now being offered besides tysabri and one other I cant think of the name. The side effects and risks of those dont seem like a better option.
