I just had #34.
Overall I will have been on Ty for 4 years this July. Thank god for this drug! Now that my infusion visits are classified as a "hospital visit" since they built a new infusion clinic I have to pay more. But Biogen stepped in and Is charging me something like $10 for the drug and no more than $150 for the infusion visit. Averages out to $80 a month since I go every 8 weeks. I used to pay $30 office visit co pay and then $125 for the drug...so it stayed relatively the same. Yeah! Every 8 weeks certainly cuts down on costs!
In the meantime I'm trying to recover from a small pneumothorax (10% collapsed lung) I got almost a week ago. I could still get Tysabri but man it hurts. Oh, and did I mention my collapsed lung was caused by the breast surgeon taking a biopsy of a lump (which came back benign) and she punctured my lung with the needle!!!!!!! Tomorrow I see a pulmonologist and may have to go in the hospital to get a chest tube put in as it is not getting better.
If it's not one thing, it's another, right?
PS: I discovered you can't fly with collapsed lungs so I have had to cancel two trips already.
