The fanny pack for IVIG was a godsend for me. I hated having to lug the IV pole around, especially on my multiple trips to the bathroom as a result of my pre-infusion hydration. My infusion nurse spikes the IG bottles and transfers the IG into a plastic transfer bag. The transfer bag and my pump are then placed into the fanny pack, and I am totally mobile during my infusion. I have even gotten into my swimming pool during the summer. Lose the pole!
