7th infusion

Postby MScrusade » Fri May 25, 2012 11:38 am

7th infusion of natalizumab or tysabri been diagnosed for 9 months now, was a real shock at the time, i lost all power to my arms and lower limbs, my sight and had severely chronic memory loss, was quite scary as a teenager been told i had MS my future was planned before that day i wanted to be a nurse and travel but when i was told i could be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life everything shattared around me. after a course of steroids and my first dose of tysabari i started to gain power in my arms, my sight returned and i began re-learning how to walk, my memory still isn't great and can't feel much on my end fingers (ring and small finger) on both hands. I can walk but not long distances, and see, everything is almost as normal as it can be with MS bringing me down, i was lucky enough to have been given the all clear with regards to the pjc viruse ( am i getting it wrong? i think i am :( ) and after 7 doses of tysabri im almost normal i can live a normal life, to an extent, i get very very fatigued when it gets closer to treatment and i ike to think after treatment as my hangover. but it works it's marvelous, downside though i can't be a Nurse but i've set new sights to teaching bio and hopefuly give people a better understanding of MS while im at it. :)
