Default IV's and other things.

Hi Theresa. and all the rest. The IV in the groin could be for an angiogram to check for clogged arteries. That may account for some of his tiredness. The medication problems could be heart related as well because some of the blood pressure and heart meds will give some males some trouble in the flag department. Barring that they did try an IGG Transfusion on me at one time. It stands for Intervenous Gamma Globulin. They hooked me up to an IV for 8 hours on 2 separate days to pump me full of antibodies. This was when one of the Neurologists thought I might have Multi Focal Motor Neuropathy. Another motor neuron disease but not as bad as ALS from what I have read. They used my hand but I suppose it is possible to use the vein in the leg. Hope this gives you food for thought and maybe a need for a coffee. Hope all is well with everyone and I can move my legs tonight. Boy was I sore this morning. Still do it again though. Regards.
