    Becky,
    I'd let them run the tests if your determind and see what the rheumo says before you actually try the drug and see what he/she's opinion says. xxx

    I went for my screening appointment today. They gave me a complete physical. Lot of labs, tb test, ekg, and I go somewhere else for a chest xray. I go back in two weeks and if they accept me I start the drug. The name of the study is ILLUMINATE-2 Research Study. I'm very ameinic right now. Sothat and other things may keep them from using me.
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
    Becky

    I just find this amazing. The fact that you are even thinking of doing this humbles me. Knowing that you could get helped or maybe harmed by a new drug and considering it anyway says so much for who you are. It is only through these trials do we get our meds. I am proud to know you no matter what you decide

    Her last post about joining the study was in 2011 (3yrs ago). We've not heard about the study since then and her last post was in 2012. We've not heard from her since then and we all hope that she is doing well.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
