I've been doing some reading about possible treatments and I read that ocrelizumab can now be given to people with RRMS and I've heard it really does wonders. Has anyone on here been on it? Has it worked for you? Did you have any side effects? I'm curently taking Avonex and it's really not working. I'm due for an appointment soon and I'm afraid I'll have more lesions, so I'm thinking of asking my doctor about Ocrevus. Any advice is appreciated!

I’m a little confused because I have a telephone appt on Weds I’ve had ms now for nearly 30yrs and had beta interferon, avonex and 2yrs trial on ya blood interferons. (Intravenous). My ms atm is starting to worsen I suppose I’m blessed to have had 30yrs being physically able but not anymore. I have spms so was wondering about asking about the Ocrevus, but there in lies another problem I have two slipped discs in my back and have to have an op on my back, I’m worried about it because it’s on the spine and would it interfere with my ms? So many questions sorry 😐 but any advice appreciated. Btw shout out to anyone who attends the Royal hallamshire Hospital I have a new consultant and his names Dr Lindert? Anybody know of him? And what he’s like? Thanks 😊 blessings to you all
