CIDP vs. POEMS Me too

Hopefully your husband has begun his radiation.
I too was diagnosed with CIDP in July 2007 and revised to POEMS in April 2008 after ending up in hospital with compression fracture. I had a months worth of radiation on vertebrae in May of 2008. Took several months before noticed improvement but it did finally kick in. I was using walker / wheelchair in May 2008 and am now walking with braces and no cane- still getting better every month- slowly getting movement back in my feet!
Keep the faith!- Same can happen for him.
