    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): Decided to finally get a port... apparently this cancer thing is going be around for a while. Hopefully this makes things easier :)

    Side Effects (Allergic reaction): Home after a 2 day infusion of Rituxan, with some shaking and flu like symptoms. On the path to recovery :)

      My husband had the allergic reaction to Rituxin that you talk about. His was not as severe and 50 mg of Benadryl prior to infusion helped him avoid the worst of it. If it helps, he got the all-clear after 5 rounds of chemo. He had the Rituxin followed by the Bendamustine. I hear the Rituxin allergies vary with different people. I am glad you are recovering.

    Oh No (Stuck in hospital for 2 days another Rituxan reaction.): Dr. moved the flow rate down to the lowest possible. Had amazing care while in the hospital at Augusta Cancer Center. Dr's nurses and staff took great care of me and were just amazing through a rough infusion!

      Looks like Rituxin is a good friend and a worst nightmare. Wishing you the best.
