JoMama—glad you finally got approval for the rituxin. That’a a lot different schedule of ivig then my dr has planned. I think i will share your schedule with her, just to see what she says. mine is 1000mg 2 times 2 weeks apart, then repeat in 6 MONTHS, then again in another 6 months. Does your dr think that you will be on it forever or just for a certain period of time? So how long after you started back on your infusions to get back 50% ? If you dont mind my asking—what was your physical condition before the rituxin as to after? sorry for so many questions, there’s just not a real lot out there about what to expect and how soon for rituxin.
i got my second infusion today, then according to my drs current plan I wont go again for 6 months. Can’t wait to see if i gain strength in my feet/ legs—-my dog’s getting FAT!!!! LOL Lori
