I had a Rituximab iv followed by a Cyclophosphamide iv on Monday, which will be repeated in 2 weeks time. I had this treatment 6 months ago, and it made a real difference to my health. However, I find that I am really poorly for a few days after the iv's, being sick, shaky, dizzy, confined to bed etc. Yesterday I spent all morning kneeling by the loo! I am starting to feel slightly better today, but wondered if anyone else has felt the same on this combination. It almost feels as though having the chemo iv on the same day is too much, my body doesnt handle it too well. Also, I had a really bad reaction halfway through the rituximab iv, throat burning, coughing, wheezing etc, so had to have extra steroids etc pumped through me. I would be interested in hearing other people's experiences on these two drugs. Many thanks.
