Right now my treatment for my condition consists of taking an immunosuppresant agent every day. I used to also take a small dose of Predinose, however I was recently diagnosed with avascular necrosis of the hip and shoulder, and can no longer take steroids. Avascular necrosis is basically when there is no blood flow going to the bone. An orthopeadist must be consulted for my care concerning that, but I am curious if anyone else out there has Devic's and is controlling theirs.
I have a great neurologist, and he would like to switch the immonosuppresant I now take to another one, but I have some fears, as Ive read up on the other one and it carries risks with it that I'm not ready to face.
Please, please, anyone out there?? =)
