cake??? I LOVE cake! must have ice cream and coffee to make it official...thanks for the invite Sherry!!
Well, here goes....OMG!!! What you're proposing that's going on is most scary! I do hope the MRI will reveal all and that it's something that can be taken care of. The fact that changes are happening so quickly could be because of the 6-MP??
Have you considered that?
I have a friend who was on Imuran and she couldn't walk from the extreme pain and loss of function in her legs...very scary indeed!
If nothing shows on the MRI..I'd lean toward the 6-MP.
They're doing your head/neck and your lower back..right?
Sherry...did you know that you can purchase a copy of your MRI? You have to request it for personal reference...but it might be good to have a copy considering all you're going through and might have to in the future.
Healing thoughts sent your way....I sure wish you didn't have to go through so much all the time.
