I am confused…are you doing the stem cell transplant with high dose cytoxan, or merely cytoxan infusions? If it is the latter, you will need time for it to work. Back in 2003 when I very experimentally did this treatment, I began cytoxan infusions (a 5 day loading dose in 10 days) then monthly infusions for 8 more months. Treatment was halted when my WBC count got to near zero. I could tell that my CIDP was arrested aafter about 4-5 months. Then I allowed 2 years of healing to get to where I eventually stopped getting better. This is not a quick treatment like IVIG is for some people, rather a long process.
