Reply To: IVIG Treatments
September 30, 2015 at 7:49 pm
I was diagnosed with GBS mid July of 2015. IVIG treatments are usually covered by insurance and they are expensive if you have to pay for them. You can google the cost to see. IVIG is the usual treatment. I had 7 treatments of IVIG while in the hospital. After coming home the neuropathy in my legs and feet where getting better and then about a month ago it started coming back working it way up my legs to my knees. My neurologist ordered a new series of IVIG treatments by outpatient. I receive 5 infusions of IVIG everyday for a week (5 treatments) and then again every month for another 5 months.
I hope this helps answer your question.
