For Norb and Andrew – IgM levels

January 9, 2008 at 5:53 pm

My initial level of IgM pre Rituxan was 4.0 g\L.

Then I had 4 infusions of Rituxan (accompanied by 700mg of Fludarabin orally for five days each time) 28 days apart. I don’t think they did any blood-work during the treatment period – at least I don’t know of any.

When I went back to check my condition four months later, my IgM level had gone down to 1.3, and I have had my blood sampled every six months after that (since September 2005), and it has been between 1.1 and 1.4 on all occations.

Hang in there guys – don’t give up hope after such “short” time.

Best wishes and fingers crossed (I can do that now:D ) for you both!
