Hello, I'm a 52 year old male who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma). I underwent 6 treatments of just Rituxan in Jan/Feb. My bone marrow has gone from 70-75% occupied to 90-95% occupied with lymphoma cells. 5/19 I start Rituxan and Fludarabine for five days straight, three weeks recovery, and repeat the cycle for 4-6 months. I know this stuff effects people differently but how soon can I expect to lose my hair?
