Hello GH:

Did you continue IVIG during the Plasma exchange? How many PE treatments did you have over those 3 years before your recovery? How long before recovery and did the PE work from the inset?

I guess I am looking for how effective PE is relative to IVIG…I have had 8 sessions (50 gram for 5 consecutive days) of IVIG – now my neuro wants to try 70 gram for 5 days. After 3 of these high dose IVIG seesions he will go to PE. My condition has not improved – much leg weakness, fatigue, lack of any normal stamina. I am 61 yrs old.

Thanks for your reply.
