Copaxone use NOW related to SERIOUS pancreas issues

My wife, has MS, and HAD been on Copaxone for a few years. Her pancreas ruptured, she was in ICU for over a month and it took her over a year to recover. She has since had 1/3 of her damaged pancreas removed and now suffers form acute pancreatitis. Out of the blue Copaxone send us a letter acknowledging her ruptured pancreas and problems saying those issues are now a side effect of Copaxone. She has since been taken off, by Dr, and STILL has SERIOUS pancreas issues. Looking for any attorney to look at our case. Any other patients have these problems?

No but I'd be seriously calling that attorney!  Especially since they acknowledged it.

Hoping your wife gets better, sending support!

We are in the process of looking for a good medical attorney. It was VERY strange getting that letter acknowledging that had info regarding my wife's pancreas rupture and acute pancreatitis. She was literally on death's door for 3 weeks. And in ICU for 4 weeks. I was actually making final arrangements for her. We have been married over 25 years and I want many more. She deserves ALL she can get for the damage caused to her for sure.
