My mom had a lymphoma, Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia. Hyper blood viscosity can be a symptom and plasmapheresis was a commonly used treatment for it. Only reporting this to say it is readily available.

In the case of Waldenstrom's, if a person has this hypercoagulation symptom, plasmapheresis was done fairly frequently, like every two weeks. Not sure how soon the Gladstone hypercoagulation would reappear.

With Alzheimer's, I can't tell you how many times my father rediscovered that port for the first time all over again just about every morning. It fed directly into all of his lifelong conspiracy theories about doctors treating him as a lab rat.
