I was diagnosed with CIDP in early 2008. My treatments from the beginning have been three a week on consecutive days for two weeks and then one week off. Then repeat. My nurse comes to my house around 8 in the morning and hooks me up. The treatment (30 grams of Gammagard) takes four hours. My nurse stays with me throughout in case I should have an adverse reaction. We watch TV I have gone through two ports (one went bad and now I am on a new one). After I ran out of veins, the port has been a godsend. This is not particularly fun to go through but what is the alternative. Fortunately, these infusions, over the years, have prevented my CIDP from spreading. That is a win. I hope this has been a help.
