Hi Rod! So so sorry that you have been going through all of this! I will keep you in my prayers and hope all goes well. Wow! You really are going to have a busy summer! Sounds like the summer I had last year and it was no fun picnic either. I hope you recover soon and get back to normal and pray that the spine was the culprit and it fixes all your problems making you 100 percent well again. Meaning that this was not CIDP after all and the surgeries correct everything that was causing you problems. Keeping my fingers crossed for you! Good luck Rod! Good luck!
