Thank yall so much – so I just had IVIG 5 days ago (I ususually do every 3 weeks), and I will get a loading dose next week – so less than 2 weeks apart and I’ll get 100grams (my usual dose is 50grams – I weigh 130).. I sure hope it works… I feel like I have been on a bit of a decline and I worry if it doesn’t work what that means.. especially without being a firm diagnosis. ugh!

Bill – 19 years – WOW – how are your veins?? Do you have a port? My veins hurt for a few days afterwards – like a chemical vasculitis/irritation.. it will hurt all the way up my arm and neck and my leg on the side I get infused.. it’s uncomfortable. you ever had that?

Lori – how are you?? I’ve been away from here for a while – you still doing rituxan?
