I have searched the posts here and only find Rituxan taken with the other chemo drugs or as a maintenance after chemo, has anyone done just the Rituxan as a first line of treatment? I have been doing wait & watch and have not had treatments of any kind. I am stage 3 grade 1 Follicular NHL in all my lymph nodes and a spot on my hip. My last PET scan showed an increase in activity although nothing in size. I am waiting for pathology report on bone biopsy from hip, but Onc is suggesting Rituxan only, once a week for 4 weeks. She thinks we should save the other chemo drugs for a later time if needed. Anyone know of this line of treatment? Thank you!
