I am glad to hear that you were approved Lynn! I also occasionally worry about
some of the risks, but I am feeling more comfortable about
it as time passes. However, I did get a referral to a dermatologist today for a entire body mole scan. That shouldn't be embarrassing, right?
It sounds like your neuro is on top of things. I did not have a MRI or bloodwork prior to starting tysabri, and my neuro does not plan on ordering an MRI unless I have problems. Sometimes, I think he is a little too laid back.
Let me know if you have any questions that I can answer. I think the fact that I survived 2 1/2 weeks with a two year old while dealing with bronchitis and a sinus infection suggests that tysabri is helping me with fatigue. I am also using my cane less.
