Hello there! I’ve had 4 full doses of Ocrevus so far and I have to say it has helped significantly with my fatigue and strength, particularly in my upper body. As far as my lower extremities, it has allowed me to start conditioning them. I’m hoping that Ocrevus coupled with Physical Therapy will allow for further improvements in hips, legs and feet. Time will tell. I’m viewing Ocrevus as an “In the meantime” therapy as I watch and wait for Stem Cell Research to continue progressing.
Back to Ocrevus, its effectiveness becomes clear to me the month before I’m due for an infusion because the weakness & fatigue resurface. My MS team has moved my infusion up a month earlier for the next one so I’ll see how that goes. I’ll continue to keep you all posted.
