My husband is going to have IVIg treatment next week, for three consecitive days. I have read about it on the internet, but don’t know what he will feel like after the treatment each day. The dr. said it would take about 5 hours. Can someone that has had this, write to me and tell me what it is going to be like. The mestinon is working but the dr. thinks this will help him. I think the MG was diagnosed early enough for this to help him.
Also we live in a moderately small city. What are your thoughts on taking him to one of the best treatment centers to treat his disease? Or are people having good outcomes with their local neurologists? His thymus is fine and he is 59 years old. His main symptoms are with speech, eating and swallowing. Also he is still working.
Thanks for any help,
My husband has just been diagnosed with mg. He is 59 and in good health besides this. He is having tests performed by a good neurologist where we live. So I don’t know all the results re: his diagnois. His main problem started out with sppech, eating, and then swallowing problems. All of the sudden his speech changed, not slurred, just very different, and anyone would notice it. Guess he had bouts of talking like a person that has had a stroke. It comes and goes. he has been put on the first medicine they give people with this disease.Mestinon. It has helped some with his speech. I am so glad about your recovery. If I find out if his case is mild or severe should I consider Mayo Clinic or another top treatment center for his disease? I am doing a lot of research. He needs to keep working. We do not know how his MG will progress. Any help on anything re: MG would be so helpful to me. You can tell me what I should know. Why you went to the Mayo Clinic, if you would like. Just any information that can help me. Thank you so much for writing Adscheer. You are giving people hope with your story.
