My Tysabri Diary...,

I had my 53rd Tysabri infusion on Wednesday, 10/26, and all went well. My infusion center was extremely busy because the infusion nurses were being trained on a new computer program (apparently, the new program was to input all patients, their treatments, their doctors, their medications, etc., online).

I currently have a lot going on at home and I'm still a little tired from the infusion, so this post will be rather short.

I love the fact that I have increased strength, and I'm feeling pretty good right now, with the exception of experiencing a little fatigue from the infusion, which is normal for me.

I am receiving more and more e-mails from patients that are contemplating going on Tysabri, and there is one girl I've been communicating with that is excited to be starting Tysabri soon (she was rather scared about PML at first, but when I explained to her about the immune system, the JC virus, etc., recommending that she also speak with their neurologist, she calmed down). She is going to keep me updated as to her progress when she finally begins her treatment with Tysabri. Again, she is rather excited now :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


Love, Lauren :)
