I feel happy with progress
I’d love to hear some more success stories! I’ve been alarmed lately by the amount of people who have had terrible relapses. Does anyone know if relapses are the norm?
I came down with CIDP four years ago. THe doctors kept telling me all of my symtpoms were in my head. I finally collapsed and was sent to the hospital. They told my husband they were going to send me to a convelescent hospital (I was 35 at the time). Before they could send me away, I finally saw an experienced nerologist who knew immediatley what I had. I started plasma pheresis and continued on this course of treatment for four years (I had a total of 106 pps).
At my worse I could hardly breathe, lift my head or open my eyes. Now I am doing great. I’m not normal, but I’ve made huge improvements. I take care of my children, I work out at the gym five times a week, I walk up stairs all day (we live in a two story), I live a good life. I’m still taking three norco a day for pain and quite honestly, energy. I also take two Cellcept a day (1000 mgs). It’s so nice being off of the pps. I can’t wait to be even better than I am today!!!!!
Hope to hear lots of happy stories!!!!
God Bless You All:p
