I had my 10th infusion earlier in the week and had my annual scope today. Nearly all of my inflammation is gone, according to the colonoscopy. There is still one section with some inflammation but the before (18 months ago, on tons of prednisone) to now (post tysabri) is quite impressive.

For those of you considering Tysabri, it isn't for everyone but it is an option to consider for sure.

Thanks for the promising results....

If the study drug I'm on right now doesn't swing me into remission soon, I might be headed that direction and I'm very nervous about it!

I just keep reminding myself "quality of life! quality of life!"

Congrats on your newfound remission! Hope you stay that way!
