Reply To: Is the plasma exchange working??

thanks Markens—-so you would try another round, even if the first round didnt produce significant results? That’s where I’m a little confused on this. I don’t want to give up on it too easily because we are talking my next step to be rituxin, but i dont want to waste a lot of time and money on PE if it’s not helping.
I miss the old board with pm’s , search, and e-mails because there were others that had this done. I believe e-mitch had only 14 exchanges total and a few others had it done just one time for 5 exchanges. I was wondering if they too were asked to wait two months at that time. My Dr is pretty insistant that it could take me up to two months to see the results from this??
I like her and trust her opinion usually, but this is not going along with anyone elses experiences Ive read about, nor any site I’ve googled regarding PE. Thanks, i was hoping you would respond—Im normally not one to call my Dr at all between appointments, but I think i will on this. Lori
