Reply To: Ability to Work with CIDP

There is a great deal of variation, so generalizations are not meaningful. But certainly CIDP can be far worse than the treatments. I spent four months in various hospital units (counting rehab), two weeks in an ICU, and much of that time in serious pain from the neuropathy and associated conditions. While I was fearful of plasma Exchange (PE) at first, which was the most invasive treatment, it turned out to be nothing to be fearful of at all. I had all of the standard treatments and am grateful for them.
