Hi there….this is Joan’s daughter, Beth…I was curious if IVIG can be started before my dad is weaned off the Prednisone? The neurologist wants to wait 3 months while he is tapering off the steroid…does this sound right or is it possible to begin him on a different treatment after he gets over this Sepsis in the hospital??: Also, he does not go back to the Neuro until May 1st…if it were you would you demand to see him sooner since this episode occured and treatment is not working. He has gotten a lot worse in just 3 months, I would hate to see what another month would be like staying on the same meds.
