I had two Rituximab infusions back in February and am due to have another two shortly. I have found my energy and mood have improved considerably. However, I am surprised that the date for the infusion is on the same day as my check up appointment - ie that is when they will be taking bloods, but they won't have any results to see what is going on and whether my lupus is active etc, but just carrying on with the infusion. As I'm actually feeling quite well, I'm wondering if this is appropriate. Don't rock the boat, kind of thing. What is other people's experience?
