Hello @shift.ms friends! It’s been 13 months since my IAHSCT and I’ve had all of my one year follow-up appointments and thought I’d update you all on my progress.
I feel like my old self again! ALL of my lingering MS symptoms have faded. This morning I did a slow paced 10K jog! That’s a full 9.75K more than pre transplant. I’ve stopped receiving my monthly IVIG infusions as my immune system is now strong enough to fight on it’s own and we have planed my immunizations to start in July. I’m back to work full time and am getting busy putting my life back in order.
I recognize my extreme good fortune and pray that this kind of treatment becomes widely available because for me, it’s been miraculous!
