Update

Hello everyone I hope y'all are hanging in there ok. Well after taking longer than anticipated looks like the time is drawing near for the start of Ocrevus. I finally received a call from my Neuro and the infusion site has been trained and ready for me here in my hometown of Duncan Oklahoma so that makes it so I won't have to travel up to Oklahoma City for the infusions. erash from your post the other day your going to find this ironic. It's been setup through a rheumatologist office here in Duncan! 😂 Maybe there is something to that conspiracy theory. However, that kind of is questionable but the way I have been feeling I can't wait to give it a try. From what I have heard from Joannskianni I am hoping for a reduction in muscle spasms an increased energy levels. I was told I can expect a call tomorrow, I so can't wait!!!! Everyone have a blessed day. I would also like to take a moment to apologize for my inactivity on here but have been dealing with trying to get my life back in order. Everything falls apart during the new starts to MS therapies when I get to not feeling well so trying to get back on top of things before I start ocrevus in case it doesn't go well as it has with others in the past. Y'all have been and are in my thoughts and prayers.

Allen

P.S. I have an appointment with my neuro on Friday and want to discuss having the Ocrevus infusions instead of taking Aubagio. Any pointers you can give me would be truly helpful!

Allen5280 I am awaiting the same call that you just got. I know these things take awhile, but I'm anxious to try some type of treatment rather than not doing anything treatment wise

. Was there any trouble with insurance coverage?

Keep us posted!

bavery207 I didn't have any trouble with insurance due to being on Medicare. It was a first for them Ietc all my high deductibles with taking Copaxone. Had to obtain funding for that however I am past that for now. Medicare did approve it immediately after it was prescribed for me which has been almost a month ago. As far as I am aware the time to get me to the actual administration has been the infusion site being trained etc. It was the first time I didn't have any trouble with the fiscal end of things. I have been told I am going to be the first person in Oklahoma to be on it and there was another person awaiting but having trouble with insurance so I am not sure how that plays out with private insurance. Hopefully it gets straightened out before long for others whom are having an issue.

Allen5280, I'm thrilled for you to have gotten over the hurdles to begin this promising treatment. I pray it goes smoothly and gives you the improvement you've been hoping for. Your willingness to be a pioneer will help so many others, too. Thank you for the updates!

That's wonderful you have an option and I hope it starts working as soon as possible!

I didn't read the other article on conspiracy theories (although I will now lol) but I can say, it might be at the rheumatologists because they regularly administer IV medications/tretments. My Mom took Remicade for RA for years at her rheumatologists office. They are set up for these procedures.
