Last week I received an email that Dr. Kim wanted to have a phone consult with me regarding my IVIG treatment and the reaction I had. I guess the main problem was the headache I had a week leading into the infusion. She told me to never go into a infusion with a headache, that it will only make things worse. I guess the proteins build up in my vessels and people who suffer from migraines already have bigger vessels which cause water retention of some sort. The proteins will trigger a migraine for those of us already suffering with on going headaches etc. They are going to cut my infusion from 25 grams to 5 grams and lengthen the infusion to five hours and split it up so I have an infusion and the other half of infusion a day later. They will also add saline to help dilute the proteins some, benadryl is suppose to help with the reaction and I am to start my Prednisone two days before the infusion to also help with reaction. My post IVIG blood work came back and my TH/1TH/2 Cytokines are still elevated. I asked if that was common after a treatment. She said yes because they are a smaller cell verses the NK cells and take multiple treatments to get down. She said they are a lot slower verses the NK cells which can go down after one treatment. So I should be able to see a difference in a few treatments. Today I am 9DPO, if I get pregnant this cycle I will immediately need to have another infusion and also double my steroids and double lovenox. If I am not pregnant this cycle, I will have my next infusion done around CD13 of next one. I was pretty optimistic about this cycle, but at 9DPO and BFN I don't see this one worked. As someone with only a 10-11 luteal phase, it should happen today or tomorrow. I don't feel pregnant though. Either way the good news is I can go forward with another treatment. I won't lie, I am nervous because I don't want to go through that pain again, but I am hoping the changes we are implementing will make a difference. Only time will tell. The most important thing to me right now is we are trying and doing everything possible within our control and we are.
