    Cool

    Hi Peg! I agree, I like where I am now, so I don't rock the boat. I haven't changed in 18 years I'm guessing.

    Peg, glad you had a good visit with your Neuro. I agree with you - I would think the one you are on has a little more track record and is a better bet. Rituxan has a good track record and your drug is based on that one. I would love to keep following you on Ocrevus. Sounds like you feel as though you are doing well.

    Just wondering....what makes a good visit with your neuro...I had the same neuro for many years and have no complaints but some visits were better than other even though they were essentially the same.

    Linda, I just enjoyed my old Neuro so much. He took up a lot of time with me even when we were talking about things other than MS. We discussed if I should have blood work done that visit or possibly a MRI (that has been awhile) but we decided together. I felt he supported me when I was down. Unfortunately, I no longer have him. They stopped him from seeing patients and he is now doing diagnostic work. He would make a wonderful diagnostician. I think the practice he is in felt he was taking up too much time with his patients.

    Thumbs up

    I don't even have a Neuro. 20 years ago, I thought I had something in my eye. So I went to a Neuro / Optho because her office was near where I worked. She ordered an MRI. She DXed me the next day, and the rest is history.

    Exactly . I see MS specialist next week. Hoping she does more than just document how much function I have lost. Would love to discuss next steps ( so to speak ).
