No new lesions!
On my brain OR spinal cord!
I saw my Neurologist today to go over my latest MRI and have a check up and medication chat.
Although I am considered "stable diseased" in radiological terms, and still have dozens of brain lesions and one large spinal cord lesion to contend with - there are no new ones!
These injections are in fact helping me.
That makes me much less resentful of my nightly shot-routine.
I am also now stable enough on Copaxone (2 years now) to try reducing my injections. This isn't something that is prescribed per se, but since I am having some lipoatrophy in certain injection locations, my doctor was comfortable allowing me to do this. I can do the injections 3 times a week now - in hopes it will help my skin (ahem... vanity). Needless to say - I am thrilled! Maybe I can reduce some of the damage these injections have done.
The icing on today's cake - I've been asked to speak at the Vancouver MS Walk! (Only for a couple minutes, but still...)
It's been a good day. A very good day.
