yes i agree shellbones this is a great place to learn ๐Ÿ™‚ I have my next ivig april 5th and my Dr mentioned me having my next scheduled infusion. So after that I guess– will be the rituxin. Im not sure if she plans to continue the ivig every 6 weeks if i start rituxin or not, i asked but she wasnt sure yet.
So are you considered “in remission” or will the imuran be forever? There seems to be a lot of controversy on this. My dr said she was thinking i would need 3 rounds of rituxin (this was once a week for 4 weeks every 9 months) so im guessing if after treatments that if dont need anything i would be considered in remission??? This whole thing is confusing to me—-cuz then some say there is no remission with cidp–only treatments??
I was reading older posts on rituxin, where a member went to northwestern for sct and found out he didnt need it because the rituxin had put him in remission ๐Ÿ™‚
