Laurel, This Makes SENSE!!!!!!!!!!!
[QUOTE=laurel]I think the doctor was implying that it was too expensive to treat him with IVIG since he is so young. We certainly had that kind of statement from hubby’s neuro. i.e.” You’re 60 yrs old and if you live to 80, this is a very expensive treatment. I’m not saying you aren’t worth it, but we need to find alternatives such as immunosuppressants.” We dug in our heels and he is still on IVIg every three weeks(knock on wood that we can keep going with it as it works). There is pressure on doctors to limit IVIG due to cost.
