Reply To: Tell me about plasma exchange
Hello Jim – you said you had 80 PE treatments followed with Rituximab and it seemed to have cured or at least put you into remission. How long have you been symptom free and do you have to remain on the Rituximab indefinitely or was it just a short period? I asked my doctor about Rituximab on my last appointment and he didn’t say much about it. I have heard good things about this treatment and that others have been put into remission after being treated with it. But what are the risks and side effects long-term?
