Went to the onc yesterday for a check-in. Finished Rituxan only therapy at the beginning of October, for Stage 4 Marginal Zone. She said that we are keeping the lymphoma at bay for now. New blood work in a month and more blood and a visit in January.
I was hoping for the R word but I need to take what I can get. It's funny, I always have considered myself a very patient person but this darned disease is really pushing me to the limit. Everything feels very open ended with a lot of UNKNOWN. It's just hard.
I keep getting upper resp infections or sinus infections and she did say that is a result of the Rituxan. I also am having a lot of concentration issues but she said that is anxiety. Could be - I'll go with that. Thought that was related to the Rituxan as well.
So onward and upward. All in all I'm a blessed woman. :)
Thanks for listening and always being there. You guys are the best!
