chickenpox & tysabri

Hello, advice please… my nephew has chickenpox and I’m due to see him on Sunday. I have been on Tysabri for a year. Will I be okay? I had chickenpox when I was younger, but I’ve read shingles is a concern..

Anyone else faced this dilemma? I can keep my distance if necessary, just need to decide if plans need to change. I don’t get to see him very often so hoping it’ll be fine.

Advice would be appreciated!

George, you’ll probably get a couple of views on this, but wouldn’t it be better to bounce it off your MS Nurse or try for a telephone consultation with your GP.
They’re best placed to answer this question.

Thanks both. I spoke to my MS nurse this morning – apparently my neurologist wasn’t too concerned. I will just try and be sensible and keep a bit of distance until it passes. Thanks
