I'm so sorry that you're having so many problems. I remember the feeling of hemoglobin at 6.4 and it's awful. Did the hemotologist give you an idea of how quickly the Rituxin could start working?
Are you going to go ahead with the splenectomy? keep us posted, K?
You are in my thoughts and prayers,
Dear Jackie and Annabella, thank you so much for your support this is what I needed, yeah it really sucks everything takes so much energy it seems, I did start my first Retuxin treatment today, and am SCHEDULED THE 11TH if I am not in for surgery yet, I have had the retuxin before it is 4 treatments, it is not a quick acting treatment, My hemo has me down and consulted with the surgeon as urgent, So I now go in at 9 am to my hemo for blood work, and instead of the 19th I now have a appointment at 12:40 with the surgeon, The nurse said today that I most likely will be scheduled for surgery next week , and then it will be decided if I will continue the Retuxin Treatments afterwards.I am doing ok on the 120 mg of Prednisone
, not sleeping much but I think it is starting to kick in a bit, which it needs to before I could have surgery, the pulsating in my ears are not as bad today as yesterday. Thank you again for being here, I love to read your posts! Deb :angel:
