Treatment abroad.

Hi guys. I haven’t been on here for a while.. I’m after some info if anyone can help though.. I was previously living in China but had to come back to England because I suffered a big relapse and now I’m back and on tysabri infusions, I am told I have to stay. I don’t really want to do that so wondered if anyone had any information in receiving treatment abroad?
Even I don’t go back to China, I might have the opportunity to go to Spain to work.
I have also recently started alternative therapy.. I had my blood tested and learnt my versions levels which I am now supplementing and have given up dairy, gluten and soya in the hope that I can come off treatment that way in the future.

I hope all of this makes sense, any input would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance

@kirsty87 , I always suggest heading to the MS Society for questions of this nature. You can contact their Helpline on 0808 800 8000.

Also consider contacting their offices where you are heading for local advice.

@kirsty87 Hi Kirsty. I’m not sure if it would be an option for you, but I’ve just finished my first year’s treatment of Mavenclad. One of the main reasons I was interested in it was that it’s a short treatment (two rounds of pills for 5 days each) and then again next year, and then nothing else (hopefully). I also like the fact that my white blood cells are supposed to go back up to a “normal” level after some time, and I’m free to consider things like having a child if I choose to, or travel without worrying about meds etc. Maybe you could speak to you doctor about it, or something similar, to open up your options to live abroad a bit more?
