Today is Round 2 of Tysabri infusions...so far, so good. Rumors of my potential demise from Round 1 were falsely reported. LOL I'm getting ready to load up the car with some local TopPot Doughnuts to take in to my neurologist's office where I receive the infusions (remember my theory on "feeding the hands that could kill you"?...still a big believer).
The only change I noticed from Round 1 Tysabri infusion was my vision did clear up...still too early to attribute that phenomenon to the medication or just blind luck (pun intended!). The remainder of my MS symptoms seem to have snuck by the medication unscathed...the spasticity, fatigue, weakness, lack of mental clarity, etc., continue to accompany me as though life long friends.
I will see Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named today, neurologist extraordinaire, and I'm sure a full neuro evaluation will be conducted (can the words, "neuro" and "conducted" be used in the same sentence without giggles from the MS peanut section?) to determine what benefits, if any, can be seen from the Tysabri. I think the Good Doctor figures as long as I can verbally spar back at her, I must be status quo.
Wish me luck...I'm hopping back in the ring in a few, short hours! AND...I'm saving out the best doughnut for myself this time!
