Hi Regarding swimming while being accessed. I would assume you will be left accessed during the infusion. You will not even be able to get the accessed area wet in the shower. Regarding working out with weights. Everyone is different, some get so sick and weak bed is the only option for them. Others don’t seem to have any effects. You will have to see where you fall. Cidp, the treatment type and course etc. is different for everyone so you will have to see what works best for you. More than likely, at least the first time you should prepare fore the worst, headache, possible nausea, flu like symptoms. You may be lucky and have no issues, we would get the aseptic meningitis reaction EVERY time for about 4 years finally now it is manageable compared to unbelievably unbearable. Be patient things will get better!!
