Multiple Sclerosis and IVSM Therapy

Sitting in my chair, watching the slow drip, drip, drip of my IV bag. Back feels great after surgery, trying to get the rest of me up to speed. After these 3 days of the drip, I'm shooting for being able to continue with oral dose I guess forever. It's the only time I ever actually feel good, so I suppose it's a no brainer, the kind I'm good at. I know you're not supposed to end a sentence in a preposition, but sometimes it just feels good. Keep your fingers crossed, hoping this gives me some relief.

IVSM??? What happened? I thought you were doing well.

I wonder if you got the bolus IVSM dose before the surgery? If not, that might explain why you have IVSM now.

I'm glad your back is doing better since surgery and I hope after the IVSM that you get a good long taper of oral prednisone....the longer the taper the better.

What did your doc say about going on 10mg a day (5 and 5) after the drip?

Take care,
Anne

Andy - when Skip was very early on in her life with MS, she took prednisone orally a number of times. It made her feel great. Glad you're enjoying the IV version.

Anne - I'm just hoping it works, I want to tap dance again.

Libby - Good luck with your thyroid, seems to be a lot of that going around.

Cranky - I did too, hoping it does something now that I've progressed.
