IVIG Reviews

Show: for
I get infusions twice a month and I know without them I would be bedridden. It has been a long slow recovery and I had hoped I would be much better by now.
finished my 2nd round of ivig..no side effects. Gaining more strength after each treatment.
Working / Worked
It worked well, few problems
The first few days to a week after an infusion, I feel weak, but then all of a sudden I feel like Super Woman. I didn't have any side affects other than the fatigue.
