Whether to continue Rituxan - Grace11

Decision Point Associated with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). Posted on December 25, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

Mom had 2 Rituxan treatments. When she went in for the third treatment there were a number of problems that she had. Her heart was in A-fib and they thought she might have an infection. She was hospitalized for 4 days and released to a skilled nursing facility for rehab. She had one more Rituxan treatment, but she wasn't getting better. She was supposed to have a 4th, but she wasn't well enough to have it. She has eaten very little for weeks, and almost nothing for the last 12 days. We think she is now close to death. She is not responding to us, not speaking. She is cared for in the same nursing home, supplemented by hospice.
