IVIG Experience

January 6, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Hi,I’m new here. I was diagnosed with cidp when I was 76. My ivig went well. I did not have the amount you had. I received 40 each time four days with a break after two. My main reaction was a headache and being tired. I did this every six weeks from November through February. I did not improve so doctor discontinued. I had various treatments via five neuroloists but nothing worked. I,therefore, concentrated on pain relief. I now have no use of my legs. A cna comes every morning to bathe me and get me dressed. I then transfer to my wheelchair. At night another cna transfers me into my hospital bed and prepares me for the night. I hope you are improving. PWBOOKS
