My brother was diagnosed with highly active MS 3 months ago. He had a severe flare up which left him hardly able to walk. He has had 3 courses of steroids and whilst there has been an improvement he has never made a full recovery which has meant that he has not be able to return to work.
He has been approved to start a course of Mavenclad which we are really pleased about. I just wondered if anyone else has been through this treatment and whether they can give any insight into how they found it, how long was it before you noticed any improvement? Were you able to manage day to day life whilst taking the tablets. My brother will be staying with me just in case.
My brother is very anxious to get back to work as he only receives SSP whilst he’s off but as he works on the railways he has to have a full medical (checking for balance, sight etc.) before he can start working. We obviously don’t know if he will ever be able to return to work but we are trying to stay positive.
I appreciate that everyone reacts to medication differently but if anyone can share any information about their experience of timing it would be helpful.
