Reply To: In home infusion
I get my infusions at home too. When I was first diagnosed and started to get IVIG I went to an infusion center. That way they could monitor me closely since it was a new drug. But I have been getting IVIG now for about 5 years and love getting it at home instead of a depressing infusion center. My supplies and Gamunex come via UPS two days before my infusion date. I get everything set up (I call my kitchen my mini hospital on infusion days). The nurse arrives and takes over. It is quicker (no travel and checking in) and cleaner (less chance of getting infection from germs). Also so much nicer relaxing on MY couch in front of MY TV. I will keep getting infusions at home as long as my insurance continues to cover in-home infusions. I think they are the way to go if you do not have problems or reactions. Good luck.
