this next week will be my first dose of rituximab for Anca + vasculitis. several dr's keep mentioning wegeners but still not one will confirm it. I've been diagnosed since july 2010 with Anca + vascultis after 10 months of being told i had arthritis by local Gp, new it wasn't and people say life begins at 40. when i got admitted to hospital and diagnosed, i under went 7 plasma exchanges and the course of Cyclophosphamide. i have been on azathioprine and steriods since oh not forgetting the warfarin for multiple PE's.
I must say the treatment i have received has been first class and life saving. i still have flare ups and my sores and crusting, nasal passages have never got better. i am lead to believe this Rituximab treatment will help?
