Has Anyone Had Plasma Pharesis?

Has Anyone Had Plasma Pharesis?

I have tried everything and the next thing my neuro is going to do to help is plasma pharesis. I am a little scared and worried about the procedure and if it helped.

I have secondary progressive MS and had just got the plasma pharesis done. It did not work for me and they placed a cathator in my neck. It cause me to have a blood cloot in my arm it was scary they had to take it out, that was a month ago I still have the blood clot and am on blood thinners. Not a good experience, do not have the cathetor placed there. They say it helps if you just have relapsing remitting ms
