Doctor thinks I have developed autoantibodies like in RA that attack the lungs causing inflammation and thinks rituximab will stop the autoimmune reaction. Has anyone had similar experience ?
Hi, I had four transfusions, one each week, because I had Non Hodgkins Lymphoma in the eye socket. I also had 20 radiation treatments, one each day.
The Rituxizan is given in the arm, takes a while as is given slowly. Does not hurt. You may feel very tired after a treatment. This stuff worked for me. I hope that you have an easy time.
