Congratulations on your SS approval! YAY! That'll be a big help to you and your family I'm sure!
I wish I could give you more info on the baclophen pump. It is something that has been suggested to Mike and will probably happen sometime in the future. I have heard great things about it's effectiveness though, and I hope it works really well for you. Have you had your initial test for it yet?
Mike was diagnosed based on clinical presentation, positive tests which included the Lumbar puncture, evoked potentials and MRI's.
So happy to hear you are doing well on the Avonex! Take care and let us know how you do with the baclophen pump. I hope someone will have more info for you on that issue.
I go to my neurologist appointment this monday,he just did an mri of T-spine and is going to evaluate my spasticity so he can by pass the baclofen trial. He did the mri of T spine to check for lesions and also to see how high they can up my spine with the cathater. The higher the cathater is implanted in the spine the better results I get from cath sight downward . I guess what I am trying to say when cath is implanted how ever high it is in your spinal column baclofen works its best going downward. Hard for me to explain, I hope I made it clear enough.
I want to Thank each and everyone of you for your replies. Godbless all you wonderful people.
