Intravenous Immunoglobulin

I have read that it can cause tremendous weight gain, is that true ?

I didn't have that problem, my weight has been pretty stable. I had 4 rounds of IVIG in April.

I don't know. I was hospitalized for 26 days while they worked on getting my red count up. I was getting so many different things, IV's, pills, and blood. I'll let you know next week. I'm getting more IVIG.
