Hi, my name is Lisa, I am 27 and was diagnosed with stage 4 FNHL February 2011. I received 8 treatments of r-cvp and completed treatment September. I am currently in remission and am still receiving ritux every two months. Since I finished treatment in September I have been experiencing other health issues in the ovaries and colon. I have been experiencing night sweats almost every night for three months now and just had a CBC don't this week and my neutrophils are showing 0 and WBC is 2.25. My doctors first reaction was I relapsing, than later found out there has been some side effects with the rituxan. Has anyone relapsed soon after treatment or had reactions with the rituxan that can share? The thought of a relapse already terrifies me and was hoping someone can discuss either early relapses or issues with rituxan to help me stay calm at this time.
