My husband had his first Rituxan infusion ( maintenance), on January 5th. He's had a cough close to a week now that wasn't getting better. He went to his general doctor yesterday and his lungs were clear. They gave him some antibiotics and cough syrup with codine to help him sleep. We were in the kitchen yesterday and he started coughing sounded like he was having a hard time breathing. He as doubled over when I looked at him he was completely red and started falling to the ground. This freaked me out... I ran a got some aspirin since I thought he was having a heart attack. When i came back He was standing up and was wondering how he got there.I told him that he fainted, he didn't remember anything. He went to lay down and he seemed to be fine, but still dealing with his cough. We have an appointment on Tuesday with his oncologist. He doesn't want to go to the doctor, say he'll wait until Tuesday.
Was wondering has anyone out there had an experience anything like this?
