Ocrevus ll

I got the call from my neurologist, yesterday that I was approved for Ocrevus and I needed to call another department to make an appointment. The woman I called wasn't there and was told she would call me back and she did. She made the appointments for me in September. I asked her if I would be able to drive my self and she told me since I was the first of the appointments she said it wasn't a good idea. So I made the appointments any way. Now I have to let my husband know and figure it out. I am nervous and happy at the same time. I'll let you know what happens.

I will I am a little bit nervous. When I spoke with the hospital they didn't know how long it would take and she was honest with me and said that I am part of the first group to have the treatment. So I will let you know.

I understand your nervousness, but I'm so glad you get to try it. Your caution shows wisdom, and I'm sure you didn't rush into your choice blindly, but carefully. I don't look at you as a guinea pig, but as a pioneer. We've waited a long time for the approval on this drug!

Praying for the best results!

Funny you should use the words guinea pig when I was telling my husband that the person I made the appointments with said that she wasn't sure how I would feel after I had the medicine because I was one of the first group to have this medicine at the hospital and he said those words to me then he said not in a bad way. You have to understand I am part Italian. But I didn't take it in a bad way I think that is one of the reasons I am nervous. I was like this for every medicine I take I want this to work. Now the other thing is trying to get to the hospital by 7 a.m maybe there won't be any traffic yea right in Boston .

Thanks your words are very helpful
