Hi all, I survived the Rituximab infusion which I had on Friday 27th May 2016. It took about 7 hours all in all. It was Painless and I wasn't as bored as I thought I'd be. As you are very sleepy from the piriton as it's a very large dose. I seemed to sale through the first 4 hours. But then had slight trouble breathing, it felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. So had to take a break and have an extra shot of steroid to be on the safe side. Apparently from feeling like a zombie for 3 days all is well so far only time will tell. My next Rituximab infusion is now on the 10th June. Let's hope it works long term fingers crossed. I hope all is well with my healthunlocked friends. Do take care. Sarah. Xx😊
