I just finished radiation and chemo with Rituxin for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma which presented in my femur and abdomen as well as a large tumor in my groin. My oncologist wants to put me on a maintenance program of Rituxin as well as a bone strengthener for two years, every three months. I am hesitant to do this. Rituxin will lower my immunity even more and I am not sure of the long term benefits. I have read that it may prolong the time before the next battle, but am also reading that it weakens my ability to fight that battle. Thoughts?
