I did start with a local neurologist but after he looked at my test results he didn’t feel comfortable making a diagnosis so he referred me to the Mayo Clinic.

The pre-authorization for IVIg has not been approved by my insurance company. My GP is working on that now. I’ve thought about having it done at home. The Mayo doctor wanted me to have 3 infusions the first and second week followed up with once a week for the next 11 weeks. I’ve thought about trying to get the 11 week portion done at home. I have a heart condition along with some kidney problems so I thought that having the first two weeks done in an infusion center connected to a hospital might be a good idea.

As of now I’m just waiting to see what happens.
