Rituxan and back pain

Angiemama Member Posts: 1 *

I’m being treated with Rituxan for Malt Lymphoma. (Salivary gland). I’ve had 2 treatments so far. 4 days after my first treatment my back started hurting. Mostly the flank area. (Back sides) It hurts and burns and is uncomfortable. Has anyone else experienced this type of back pain with Rituxan infusions?

    Actually I had the opposite effect. A nagging backache I had for years went away when I started Rituxan. Good luck. Hope it stops hurting soon.
