Hi from Mark

Hi everyone I’m not on here that often I just drop in when I get the chance.

I had my 100th Tysabri infusion a week passed on Wednesday I’m doing great I’ve not had a relapse since I started that itself is amazing going from a relapse every 4 to 6 weeks and I’m also walking I’ve been out of my wheelchair for almost 9 years now I was in and out more in it for almost 2 years before I got Tysabri.

Another wee thing I’m over the moon about me and my fiancee are expecting our first baby in January we’ve been trying for a while but with my ms things didn’t work how they should lol

I hope everyone is doing as well as can be I know the heat probably affects most of you I’m luck I’m at my best in that weather I seem to thrive in it.

So nice to read that a MS diagnosis is not always a decline into hopelessness.

You have about 10 infusions each year? I had no idea they were so frequent.

In any event, thanks for sharing!

It’s every 4 weeks Paolo I think it’s something like 13 infusions a year I’ve missed a few over the years for 1 reason or another.

Brilliant! I never knew that Tysabri made women pregnant.


Are you going to write it up for The Lancet?

Following my above surprise, I did a spot of reading about Tysabri and saw it was a monthly thing. For some strange reason, it had stuck in my head that it was more of an annual dose!!!

None of this matters of course because currently, i am a grateful consumer of Tecfidera. But i guess i retained the idea of Tysabri in the back of my mind in case i needed a ‘Plan B’.

Anyway… onwards and upwards!

Congratulations to you both and all good wishes.
