Today I was reading Ocrevus has been licenced for people with ppms in the UK. I was feeling very bouyed and saw it as a real glimmer of hope. I am newly diagnosed, as in 2 and a half years ago and my mobility is now reduced to shuffling with a walker indoors and needing a motorised chair outside. I really felt happy.
Then I continued to read the article and saw that, “weakening the immune system risks infection and of cancer emerging”. Well, consider I will shortly be starting a five week course of daily Radiotherapy having had breast cancer diagnosed five weeks ago, I think I can be assured that’s any chance of me being prescribed this as a prospective candidate. To my utter surprise, I found myself crying. Disappointed and angry. My ms triumphs yet again.
