Good Afternoon!

Well all is quite in this household for a second so I am hoping that I can type quickly.

At the end of Jan., my primary care ordered IVIG for me for the 1st time in over a year when they had only given me 2 o3 doses over a 6 mo. period. I am not as knowledgeable as everyone hear about IVIG so,, this is what I know….

While in the hospital on my “usual” monthly visit, I wrote down what was on the bag. IMMUNE GLOB HUM, CAPR IGG 10% 77G over 2 days 5 hours each day and the second day it hit like a ton of bricks.

In the meantime, I ended up with a 14″ blood clot in my right leg. They had been trying to stop my cycle unsuccessfully through birth control which is what they feel caused the blood clot.

Now I have a neuro who ordered 4 Mondays of IVIG over a 3 hour period and that is all I know about it. I will be asking all the right questions, I hope on Monday my main one … Does the neuro know about the one I received in Jan and would it have changed his plans. Don’t ask we can never seem to get through to the neuro or his staff. I guess what happens when he is the only one in this area that will take our ins.

sorry have to go..

Be well…and stay positive
