I have developed severe anemia causing 5 blood transfusions since late April. I have had two bone marrow biopsies. The specialist team has determined it is likely my Tysabri (even though I was taken off for 5 months with no significant increase in hemaglobin). My iron is normal, just my hemaglobin that is low, 6.2 last time I went in. I am starting prednisone for 4 weeks 60 mg a day and my doctor wants me to try rituximab. Has anyone tried rituximab and if so, what was your experience?
have docs checked your colon? Many folks loose blood via their large intestines. Please make sure they check.
Yes, I was on Rituxin for quite a while. It's a very good drug and has limited side effects. I actually didn't even notice any.
I had my first Rituxan infusion last week. I can start to feel my left leg again. I feel encouraged by this.
After having the first infusion my next MRI show double the amt of lesion I had before it.
