It’s been a year since I was diagnosed with CIDP. With a new doctor starting in May, I’ve been on bi-weekly treatments of IVIg.

Most people get a quick boost from IVIg. So it will allow you more mobility, rather quickly.

I’d say a year later, I’m 80% of my former self. I work 48 hours a week, cut the grass and am able to play golf again ( not as well, but I’m playing!).

That said, I’m exhausted at the end of the work day and my lower legs still feel a bit weak and my feet just hurt all the time. So things may not turn out perfect, but recovery can take years.

The point being is that once you begin treatment things will likely improve quickly and in the long run you can resume most of your activities.

Good luck. Keep us informed.
