Thanks Bruiser for your comments. I added the link to further describe the complications from plasmapheresis. I thought it could describe it a lot better than I can. You have actually added the informed description I should have added.

The reason my doctor has me on this treatment is because I have tried avonex, rebif, and copaxone and my MS keeps on progressing. This is the only treatment that has helped me but I am still hoping something else comes along that will be more permanent. So I remain hopeful and I am taking advantage of the plasmapheresis to work out and make my muscles stronger while other treatments are being developed.
