I was diagnosed with Follicular Non Hudgkin's Lymphoma last year in November. Had 4 Month Chemo with Bendeka. Now in remission, and was recommended to do a 2 year maintenance treatment with [[treatment:Rituxan Hycela:5c648bd265df61506ecba9a7]]. Anybody else has the same treatment? Is it standard to do it after chemo? What are the long term side effects? I feel fine, but still worry about this
Anybody completed the 2 year? Was any recurrence of the cancer shortly after finishing treatment.… read more
How long after treatment did patients see positive results like having more energy less fatigue less b symptoms like sweats it been a month since my wife completed here front line treatment of Rituxinab 1 a week for a month
May be taking rituxan as a follow up treatment. Just finished up r chops 5 weeks ago. Are there side effects? I am in remission but still have a very small amount of non hodgkins lymphoma left in mid section. Will it get rid of it or does it keep it from growing? What are the chances of it coming back while on this drug?Tks, becky
Wow, thanks. You just can never give up. I'm glad you and your dr was very proactive as I will be too.
If so how did it go and how did you feel immediately afterwards? My hubby is having this done on Wednesday (and Friday) and is really building it up in his head.
Has anyone gotten a urinary infection while on R-Chop?
Hubby thinks he can independently go to his chemo treatments.He will be having Bendamustine and rituxan.
Katie, FIY..... The Cancer Society has a program of volunteers that drive folks to and from treatment.
I thought I read/heard that this is now available by injection as well as infusion is that true?
Thanks so much for the input. I knew I read it somewhere.
I had Rituxan first line treatment and had my first rituxan maintenance treatment in December. Caught a bad cold 4 weeks ago and am really struggling to get rid of it. Has anyone had a similar problem and how eventually get over it?
