Having failed MTX and Ciclosporin now on Hydroxy, been on steroids for almost 3 yrs my Rheumy has decided Rituximab is the way to go. Looked online (generally and on here obv) and am reasonably positive about it. In our area you have to apply to the local PCT for approval (due to cost I believe) so may have to wait a while..who knows.
Hope it works, getting bored of my bodys ability to outsmart my consultants (haematology and rheumy) really want to knock the steroids on the head. Fed up of repeat script running at 2 pages (thank heavens for Pre-pay or I would be bankrupt lol) on the whole though feeling much chirpier than recent(ish) blogs, onwards and upwards. Been very busy of late jnr midget turned 4, mam turned 70 lots of party prep (as well as work/housework, etc) so am bone weary but in the main doing not so bad. Cross my fingers it continues (and yes I can still do that yay) till the next trauma/event/update...hope ur all doing okay, or if not that its only temporary..
