Cured by Rituxan

Dear Kel!

Hope you have read the thread mentioned by Iowagal. In addition to what I’ve written there, I can tell you that I have continued to improve since then. Ask your neuro if your antiMag is caused by Monoclonal Gammopathy (MGUS), because then the probability of your getting better – or even more or less cured, like me – by Rituxan. If your neuro thinks Rituxan could work for you, I wouldn’t hesitate to try it. You might get some side effects, but they are comparatively mild in comparison to the positive effect it could have. Rituxan combined with another chemo (Fludarabin) has worked wonders for me, and in two years I have gone from having a painful wreck of a body to an 80% “normally” functioning person.

I wish you all the luck in the world!
