Just an update: Been on Tysabri for just over a year now. Had my 13th infusion a week or so ago.

Not on steroids anymore (9 months free of them).
Colonoscopy showed much improved colon.

Other than the occasional headaches, I'm doing a ton better than I was a year ago.

If you have been considering Tysabri, this is definitely an option. It doesn't work for everyone but consider me a success story.
