At last!

Hello all. It's been six weeks since my second infusion of Rituximab. I have now managed to stop taking painkillers as of the middle of last week. Seem to be improving daily. I still have aches, stiffness and tiredness but there are the odd moments when I forget I have it and do something like getting in and out of a car easily . Usually I struggle. I am feeling better mentally and am very hopeful of this actually working for me. After months of tears and pain leading up to the initial infusion I feel relaxed. Aches and stiffness I can cope with and have been referred for physio, so am hoping I can get more relief. I still can't make a fist on the morning but that also is improving.I have had RH since 1997. So happy my consiltant referred me for this. Actually looking forward instead of backwards.
