IVIG treatment, any tips?

Hi I am going to start the IVIG treatments this Wednesday & Friday. Then they continue monthly. My Dr. called me Friday with a change in plans fom waiting 1 month to waiting 5 days. WOW! Reading as much as I can. I find experiences are extremely helpful. I would appreciate your sharing! Thanks, June

Re: IVIG treatment, any tips?

Hi June - I had ivig treatments monthly for a year in hopes it would help my SFN. It didn't. That said, I want to assure you the treatments are very safe and I had absolutely no ill effects from having them. The type of neuropathy you have is different from what I have, so there is a good chance these treatments will help you. Just wanted to reassure you not to worry about getting the treatments and send along my best wishes that they help you. - Ruby

Re: IVIG treatment, any tips?

Hi Cocoa100
IVIG is a treatment to slow down the progress of the non systemic vascultic neuropathy that I have, but there are many more uses.. It is pooled blood from thousands of donors, a protein plasma is withdrawn, changed to powder it is then given to u by IV in the hospital. I had my first one Wednesday past.. i''ll talk about another day. June
