Re: Just approved for Ocrevus

Had my 2nd Ocrevus drip today; slept through 90% of it including the one hour wait period afterward... Came home, walked to the corner, picked up Chinese food for dinner.

Just approved for Ocrevus

I am in my early 60's; was diagnosed with PPMS just over 2 years ago. Due to a side health challenge just under 3 years ago, they fused two bones in my neck just below my skull together (spine surgery). When that recuperation was not going well, I was sent for an MRI & Spinal Tap. Voila PPMS... So a...
