ivg vs PP

Nate was never given any IVIG. His Neuro said he would have trouble getting enough of it for some reason.
He did 12 hrs of Plasma Pheresis instead.
He said that would be faster than trying to get enough IVIG.
Nate was so sick that we didn’t have time to get any other opininons but I wish we had.
Since then we have been told by numerous sources that Nate might have recovered faster with IVIG.
He is now 11 mos out and is still partially paralyzed, legs and feet.
I don’t know if getting IVIG now would help or not.
I still have a lingering feeling that he should have had it early on.
