Hey Joy, UA, Diane, Chart and Lynn:
Just thought I'd let you know how I'm feeling this morning. I spent most of yesterday just feeling like out of sorts. I tried to refill some prescript
ions but waited to long and won't be able to get them until next Tuesday. Oh well, I'll manage. I'm sure. As for how the IVIG is affecting me I still have a slight headache. So far the areas where my vasculitis is doesn't look a bit better.
Thank you all for your well wishes and congrats for my daughters graduation. Lynn my IVIG infusions will be monthly. So my next infusion will be on the 15th and 16th of June. Lynn, I'm curious where you found your figures on the cost of the IVIG, I did some research on google and found prince way different from yours.
It did say the less you weigh the cheaper it is. So a big old "steroid fat body" like me cost a lot more LOL. Most of the sites I went to they ran anywhere from $1,550 to $3500 a gram. Then they figure how many grams you need per KG of body weight. One example I saw was where the family said they paid $26,000 for 4 sessions, the young man weight 70 kg and was prescribed 2grams per kg. It's late so if my math is wrong forgive me but I believe that figures out to like $185.71 per gram I believe. It really doesn't matter what it costs as I'm sure between Medicare and Tricare it will be covered. Mind you I'm VERY thankful that it will be covered.
I hope everyone has a Very Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Please, take care of yourselves and I'm praying that you all have low or even better, pain free days. I'll be having my MRI on my foot Sunday at 11:00, then back off to the surgeon on the 10th of June. Oh, I do have a favor to ask, my 30th wedding anniversary is coming up on June 8th. Any ideas what to get for the man who has everything he pretty much wants. He does have to old classic Mopar cars that he's restoring. I'll take any and all suggestions to heart. Thanks in advance.
