My husband has NHL Stage 3, both small & large B cell. He has had 3 treatments with Rituxan (before docs discovered the Large cell as well) and 7 treatments of CHOP with one more to go this week. He's terribly ill. Absolutely no energy, having trouble walking, very very weak, just developed Bell's Palsy, and has pain from legs (calves) muscle, and pain in his back. He is taking Newlasta and Procrit which would explain some of the muscle pain, but he's not recovering between chemos like he was previously. Is it normal to be (and stay) so very ill like this?
