    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I will be starting my second treatment on February 3, 2014. I completed four cycles of rituxan in December 2013. After having a biopsy at the beginning of Jan., the results showed that the lymphoma was transforming/progressing. I will be having a port placement done and will receive Treanda and Rituxan on days 1 and 2 then a nuelasta injection on day 3.

      In the first couple months of having treanda and rituxin I would get constipated and really weak because my blood count was low,so then I got the neulasta shots to boost my count,which hurt because the shot was working,but my body got used to everything and I would go do those treatments and then go run errands and go back to work after.

      The very first time I had a Rituxan infusion, I broke out with the chills. They put five heated blankets on me and it didn't help. They disconnected me and let me rest. After fifteen minutes or so, they hooked me up again, then I got the sweats. They disconnected me again, gave me some Tylenol, let me rest, then hooked me up again. I had five more infusions, one every three weeks. After that I did not have any other problems, even when I had Rituxan in another series.
