It has been quite awhile since I have written and update about Multiple Sclerosis and what has been going with that. I had an MRI at the end of August and it showed that I am still 100% stable which is amazing for me. The MS has always been very active in me so that fact that I have been stable for about 4 years or so now is huge for me. I know it has everything to do with the Tysabri and that makes it all worth it for me.
While I was at my doctors appointment she asked me is I wanted to get tested for the JC virus, which for those people who don’t know it is what cause people on Tysabri to get PML. I told her no because I won’t stop taking Tysabri so I really don’t want to worry about it if I do have the JC virus. She did tell me that if and when I do have another relapse I will have to get the test done to rule out that I haven’t developed PML. My chances of developing it now that I have been on it for about 4 years is really low so I am not worrying about it all.
Other than that there hasn’t been any changes. I still have ups and downs when it comes to how I feel and things like that but that is pretty normal. So there isn’t much else I can say. I am stable and doing pretty well.
If you have any questions please let me know!
