Liver - Shliver!
Thanks to all that commented on my last post. I have thought a lot about what the value of Tysabri is for me. With PML as the only possible side effect, it's a little funny that the choice would be easier: if I die, then too bad, if not, I'll have the best medicine around. On the other hand, liver trouble is somewhat more like the thing I'm trying to avoid: a slow decline in health. It's less decisive, less appealing somehow than a quick clean solution like PML or no MS. On the other hand, liver damage is a pretty common side effect. I don't consider liver damage when I take tylenol. When I consider the alternative, MS symptoms that I KNOW happen, I can clearly see the quality of life difference. On the whole, I am pretty sure that Tysabri is the best solution for me. Thanks for everyone's comments and concern.
