Reply To: Tell me about plasma exchange
Is the effects of Plasma Exchange permanent or do you still have the bad antibodies attacking your nerves and require treatment to keep it at bay? I am on IVIG and starting to not respond to it the way I used to so seeking other treatment options. I don’t want to go the IV Steroid route as the side effects to me are just too much. I am afraid to go on the immune suppression drugs also. So i mentioned PE to my neurologist. He said he usually only does PE on worst case patients and wouldn’t recommend PE for me. I am confused. It seems like a good option to have the bad antibodies taken out and replaced with new plasma.
