Have you had th types of progress that george and others have had from your treatment? Have you had any reversal of symptoms and gotten off of ms drugs?
Yes, I have had some reversal of symptoms and I am completely off any MS drugs. It has been 8 months since my transplant and I am feeling pretty good most of the time. My main symptoms were pain, sensory problems, fatigue, vertigo, muscle weakness, and I was not able to walk more then maybe 15 minutes, after that my left leg would start dragging. Now I am able to go on hour long walks and my left leg is keeping up. Fatigue and Vertigo are almost gone, I have more energy and my pain has decreased by about 50%. I still have sensory problems (some numbness, pins and needles), and I still have days where I'm feeling "off", but it has gotten much better. Most important, I have not had an exacerbation since the transplant. Before the treatment I had 3 attacks in 18 months while being on Copaxone. Within a year, my EDSS went from 1.0 to 3.5, and I was only diagnosed two years ago. I feel that the transplant stopped my MS progression and I hope I will have some more improvements, but I am already very happy where I am. I wish that everyone who wants to get this transplant will get the chance to do it. I believe in this treatment 100%
I hope you feel better soon.
