I know that I haven't posted in a long time, but things have been crazy. On March 7 my husband had a full left knee replacement and I stayed with him in the hospital, then we got home and it was my turn to play caretaker. It wasn't easy to do everything and I was exhausted. I had had a flare before he had the surgery, and finally about 2 1/2 weeks ago I had a full-blown relapse which required a 5-day round of Acthar. I wasn't able to walk for a couple of days, even with a walker, then I started to be able to walk with a walker and finally last Saturday I was able to go back to the cane. MRIs showed no new lesions in February, but I don't know about now although the neuro doesn't seem to want to repeat them. I'm going now to get back on my horse, and I'm back in PT, both land and aqua. It also affected my arms this time, so I'm back playing with blocks and putty and the rest of it. Has anyone switched to the new Ocrevus from their prior DMT for RRMS? My doctor had mentioned it, but I just saw new studies that show that Tecfidera is working extremely well and seems to be outpacing even Gilenya which I was put on first and which I thought was fantastic until it ripped up my stomach. So I am not sure what I want to do; I've been experiencing several flares per year and about one full-blown relapse which has required Acthar but it doesn't seem to result in new lesions.
