I thank you for this site, as I already learned new things.
My son was diagnosed with gpa last week.
They did the plasmapheresis five times and they are scheduled to administer rituximab shortly.
This has been a trying week, as we first learned the seriousness of his illness, and then we learned all the new terminology, and now we pray that the treatment will accomplish what it needs to do, and that the side effects should be minimized.
It is good to have a place where I can dialogue his struggles and receive advice and comfort from others in similar positions.
Thank you again
