Mixed news today from my visit to the hospital. Positive news: signs are good for my recovery. Nerve damage has now bottomed out and she is hopeful. Bloods and urine all good.
Now to keep the PAN at bay I have been told I will have to face 6 months more of chemotherapy. Because I am "off plan" for Rituximab, and my ESR and CRP markers do not mirror my neurological symptoms, and as PAN is ANCA negative it appears that Rituximab is a big fat no, and that some of symptoms are contradictory.
6 months more chemo then, but I'll take all of that over PAN any day of the week.
