Have anyone tried the plasma exchange? If so, how are you after the exchange?
Friday I was told I have ON. Since I have reaction to IV steroids, I was told my only option plasma exchange. I was also told that I would be admitted for this. Has anyone ever had this and been admitted to have it done? My hospital in my local area does not do it, they know nothing about MS, it is done 40 minutes away at another major hospital. My doctor is the opposite way 1 hr and 20 minutes away. Thanks for any help!
My current walking has affected my walking and balance on my right side. Course of plasma exchange doesn't seem to have helped.
Has anyone has similar problems, any suggestions to help with this problem?..,,
