Had the first infusion of third cycle of Rituixmab last Wednesday. Hospital rang me yesterday to say that my white cell count (neutrophils) are very low this is based on the bloods they took before the infusion. He told me to avoid people with colds/coughs etc. I have to have another blood test tomorrow and they may postpone next weeks infusion depending on what my white cells are at. Has anyone else had a low cell count and what have the effects been, have you been ill from it. He said mine where 133.
