Jomama did you get your rituxin approval? I think using the fact that it worked for you in the past, it is less expensive than ivig, and less infusions than ivig should all be very good points to file an appeal if necessary. Plus you could throw in the fact that you are able to work full time with rituxin use and fear disability if denied.
When on rituxin were you on the 1000mg 2x every 6 months? i recently started it two weeks ago—can’t wait to see if it’s going to work. I saw your comment about it taking 6 weeks for you. How significant was your improvement in those 6 weeks? Lori
