Had four infusions of Rituxen in Sept-Oct of this year for Stage IV NMZ NHL. No Remission yet. Have had repeated upper resp. infections, on antibiotics twice for them. NOW... I have C-diff, a nasty intestinal infection caused by compromized immune system and too many antibiotics! And even though I am on Flagyl (yet another antibiotic)to treat it I can also feel another upper resp. infection starting!! UGH. My Gastro and Onc docs are aware.
So the question is... anyone else experience this following Rituxen or any other treatment? I am pretty disgusted at this point. I KNOW this could be so much worse, but I haven't felt good for a year and it does take a toll.
Thanks for the support and love from all of you!
And... Happy New Year. I pray we all hear the "R" word this year!!
