I need support

I have mixed connective tissue disease mainly scleroderma and Sjogrens disease very rheumatic. I received rituxan about 4 months ago 2 txs of it. I had tried many other medications that helped for a while but then wore off or made me sick. Lupus is not the primary problem but it all falls into the rheumatic catagory because I for sure have rheumatoid arthritis as well. I have put on 60 plus pounds since the tx my face hands and stomache are very swollen. My gums are bleeding and I need a graph now on the gums. Mainly I am so concerned about the rapid weight gain I have been no larger than 130 my whole life and now I am a little over 200 with no change in diet even less maybe because my stomach is so enlarged that I can't eat much. I really need help and am wondering if anyone else is going through the same problems since the tx. I thank you for your time and would love to start a dialogue about this situation. Thank You
Chanin Clayton
