IVIG and age?

January 30, 2009 at 8:26 pm


I just saw a post from Wing on how long IVIG stays effective. I wish we could get some good answers there. I don’t remember anyone at the syposium asking what you have asked, although I wish someone did.

I just started the IVIG and I turn 45 in two weeks. My first dose was like a miracle with major improvements. I believe the amount of improvement suprised several doctors and my home nurse. I am hopeful to get on a roll here and knock this disease on its Butt!

I went from using a cane doing steps on my behind, to fast walking and short sprint jog and knumbness reduce by 1/2 at least, I can now carry a 40 lb bag of wood pellets with one hand and about hold it out in front of me. Almost Hulk like. all that in 4 weeks.
It would be discouraging to learn that its only temporary or won’t work in a few years. But if thats the case hopefully something else will come down the line. See Ya–tim–
