IVIG infusion treatments for Bronciectasis

Posted by kpost2 @kpost2, Jul 29, 2019

After doing my IVIG infusion treatments every four weeks for two years now. I have always wanted to know what is the end game on my treatment. Is this something that I will be taking the rest of my life? My immune system is always low and I know this keeps me from getting sick, but there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. Having Bronchiectasis after my Pneumonia has been a pain in the ass. I told my pulminologist and Allergist that I feel like a lab rat and that they don’t know how to treat me. All they do is laugh and said this is the step we have to take.

I live in Nebraska. I have an Appointment today with my Allergist. She is the one that my I.V.I.G. treatments are with.

@kpost2 Hi there, I think you’re the first Nebraskan I have seen on mayoconnect. I live in California, but grew up in Beatrice & Millard. Where are you located? Do you go to NJH for care? Sorry you are in this elite “club”!
