Tomorrow afternoon, I go in for my 7th Tysabri infusion. I hate that after having had six infusions, I'm still not sure how I feel about being on this treatment. Before I receive the medicine I have an appointment with my neurologist, Dr. Short, which is probably a good thing. I want, and need, to address a few things with him, although I'm not sure if it will do much good at this point. I'd like to know why he did not at least suggest the TENS unit to me months ago, rather than increasing the Baclofen, my pain medication. I would also like to question his reason for choosing to cancel the lumbar and thoracic spine MRI's which I was supposed to have had taken before my LAST infusion in May. Ugh. I'll just deal with all of this tomorrow.. or technically, today.
