I have been on Tysabri for 2 years and I’ve never felt so good!
three weeks ago I was told that I have the JC Virus and now have a 1 in 120 chance of developing the dreaded PM of L. My neurologist has said that he is happy for me to continue taking Tysabri (with a new and updated consent form) or move on to Avonex.
1 in 120 doesn’t seem too bad, does it? I was told it is the same chance of being in a car crash but if people drive like they do in my home town, I am screwed, lol.
Jokes a side - my neuro also said that I have about 3months (now about 1-2months) before I have a major relapse. I can’t make a decision.
I have a fairly new (and amazing) job so I refuse to start relapsing again!
Advice would be much appreciated
