I have had to “resort” to plasmapheresis, and I am pretty happy with the choice. Depending on your husband’s physiology, it might be could be a good choice.

Ali mentioned that plasmapheresis is considered invasive. If your husband can have good sized needles inserted into his arm veins, then it is not that much more invasive than IVIg.

I could write a long reply to your question of what to expect, but I am not sure if it is really appropriate to do so here. Private message me.
