Hi Lisa Lucier, I do not have small fiber neuropathy, that I have been told. However, I do have Peripheral Neuropathy that is autoimmune caused by the FGFR3 antibody. I also have not ever had IVIG therapy. Darlia

Hi Everyone!. I have not posted in a long while. Too busy or tired or both!. Anyway, I was tagged in this post but I do not have IBM so not sure where the Moderator is going with this. I am sorry that I don't have any info on this autoimmune disorder even though I have plenty others. Take it easy ~ Darlia
Aug 5, 2018 · Renal Cancer: What are you supposed to feel after surgery? in Cancer
Welcome @jewels5 .. I am a renal cell carcinoma survivor. Right nephrectomy. Done in March 2008, so 10 yrs now been cancer free. Mine was caught at early stage 1. Only 1 cm in size. Encapsulated and back then there wasn't as many options so surgery was the best choice. I've been living a normal life on one kidney. I get a scan every year for the FU but because it was small and had not spread, no other actions were needed like chemo or radiation. They did tell me that kidney cancer is the slowest growing and that I'd already had it like 3 yrs when they discovered it. I had no symptoms yet either. Scarey that it had been in my body that long, I thought. It was seen on an ultrasound that was done to basically take a look at my stomach due to Acid Reflux and the Gastro Dr had ordered the complete abdomen be done. Sooooo. I was thankful for that. I was only 48 when it was found! Young and being female it was not common. I suspect it came from either smoking (I'd quit in '99) or mold in the house or being around asbestos without knowledge. Guess we'll never know.
If it's spread to other parts of his body, chemo is the usual choice I've heard. The scar I have is in my abdomen and its about 7-8 inches. I have keloid scar now too as it runs in our family. The recoup time in hospital was like 6 days for me. If I can help with other ?'s I'll be happy to help. Darlia
In my study of this, its the combination of certain drugs. These that you've listed do not sound like any that are involved when taken together. You can do more research at looking up serotonin syndrome on the internet. Even the reference lit that came with my meds said to beware of this syndrome.
