It may not be much but there have been some minor improvements since I received Rituxan treatment in October. My tongue is almost back to normal and a few days ago I noticed that I can feel the keys on the keyboard again with my fingertips. I am still almost completely dependent on my power chair and cannot walk without support. I should receive results of yesterdays blood tests in about a week. Hopefully the anti-MAG IgM went down even more indicating that it’s helping.

A friend of mine in Switzerland received Rituxan at almost the same time as I did just one day later. By now his anti-MAG IgM went down by 50%. His neurologist told him last week that it may not be until in June before he sees any improvements.

It’s difficult to be patient.
