Marginal Zone Lymphoma

Hello, my mother at 90 is finally at the stage of her marginal sone lymphoma that symptoms needed addressing. She has finished her four weeks ( once a week) of rituxin and her platelets are still low. How long does it take for the rituxin and steroids to impact the bodys making and keeping healthy platelets ?  Thanks

 I don't have a solid answer for you, but a quick call to your dear mothers clinic might be a good idea. My blood counts didn't drop and I never required shots to boost counts, but my cancer was different than your moms. I have Follicular NHL and finished all treatments a year ago this month. She is older than most also, so it may take a little longer..I am 63. Hopefully someone with more information will jump in and help you out. I'll add your mom to my prayer list.

Best wishes...Sue
