Rituxan it is.....

Though I missed my pet scan due to scheduling flub ups, today I went back on the maintenance Rituxan treatment.  It has been about a year since I received a dose of Rituxan, so it was kinda strange feeling the tingly scalp over the 3 hour treatment.  High blood sugars tonight due to the steroids to counter the Rituxan side effects.  Boy, I sure do remember the previous treatments.  Next week I will have another pet scan, and look forward to hearing there is NED (no evidence of disease).  So far, no signs of trouble from treatment, so smooth sailing.  Gonna be doing treatments through next year, so there are 7 more rounds.  Most survivors have about a 1 year maintenance period, with some two years.  Gonna trust the oncologist on how long we do maintenance and hope to keep remission as long as possible.

Till next time, iBelieve!
