I know I haven't posted very much lately, sorry. I do read the posts, but haven't responded much because I type funny on my phone and it's embarrassing LOL.
I had my 3rd Rituxan thursday and I'm ok, just really tired. I slept almost 14 hours yesterday and today my back is killing me. I guess it serves me right. Hopefully if I move around today it'll loosen up.
This time with the Rituxan I've had a couple of side effects that I haven't had before. I woke up one morning with the most incredible leg cramp...I woke up screaming and scared the heck out of my dog LOL. I've also had some pretty bad muscle cramps that I certainly don't remember from the last time. I've been extremely tired every weekend and spent most of the time sleeping.
I do admit, that I am kind of afraid this isn't working. I was hoping to see some of the swelling in my armpit go down and it just doesn't look it. I hope it's just my imagination. Next Thursday I see my onc so I hope that he can't feel it because I never could tell the difference between muscle and node.
I am very happy with all the good news going on with several of you! Congratulations to all who are doing great. And to those who are currently struggling with emotions and treatments my good wishes are definitely there.
Take care all,
