Introductions

Post by gabelle » 12 years ago

Hello, I'm another newbe to this site. Diagnosed in 2003, (wheelchair dependent). MD's with 2 opinions, one says RRMS now SPMS and the other says PPMS. I have tried all CRAB's, none work. I am now approved for Tysabri and should get 1st infusion soon. This is the best MS site I have found. A lot of good info here and I am looking forward to continued communication and new friendships.

Hi gabelle:

Welcome.

It sounds like you’ve been through ths MS dx mill. I think this has happened to most of us. I went thru it for two years, it’s the nature of the beast.

I think it’s great they approved you for tysabri. I have PPMS and they said no for me. From what I read, It seems pretty effective. Please let us know how it goes.

Don’t hesitate to post often, a lot of watch in case we can relate or help. Sometimes just knowing a lot of us are in the same boat helps a little.

Good luck

Mick
